The default lock screen is the one that displays at startup when secure sign-in with Ctrl+Alt+Delete is enabled.

The user lock screen is the one that you select the background image for your account in Settings, displays the last user lock screen at startup when secure sign-in with Ctrl+Alt+Delete is disabled, when a user locks the PC while signed in to Windows 10, and after the one minute idle timeout period when a user signs out of Windows 10.
