Before continuing: No, the subgroups are DYNAMICALLY created, so including DEFAULT 0|1 in a Description Resource file is out. Just to get that out of the way.
Here's the code from within NodeData->GetDDescription() :
subgrp = GetCustomDataTypeDefault(DTYPE_GROUP);
subgrp.SetBool(DESC_DEFAULT, FALSE); // <- Does not work (as expected since it is for default LONG, Real, Vector values)
if(!description->SetParameter(DescLevel(group, DTYPE_GROUP, 0), subgrp, DescLevel(ID_OBJECTPROPERTIES))) return FALSE;
So, how do I set the initial folded state of the subgroups in this situation? I have noticed that if I open a subgroup interactively in the A.M., load a new object with the PluginObject, the subgroup will be open (and thus the reason why I am certain that SetBool(DESC_DEFAULT, FALSE) is not the right course).

I think that the DESC_DEFAULT flag only applies when the object or tag or what ever is initially created. Once it's created, then the folded/unfolded state is saved with the file. I tried adding that line to the SDK Look at Camera expression and switched it back an forth to TRUE/FALSE, and it seemed to work, but only for when the object is initially created.
