Why are most of the telemetry fields enabled (set to “true”)?
Shouldn’t they all be set to false? Then there’s also a telemetry ID listed as well as a URL to where telemetry is to be sent.
I disable telemetry fields manually, but seeing much of them enabled makes me feel sad.
Any particular reason they are set like that?
Maybe the devs forgot about firefox’s telemetry
Telemetry and other trackers are disabled. Removing the whole code is a lot of work and hard to maintain. See this ticket:

Correct, Felltree! And thank you for making this point.
If Telemetry is disabled in Tor Browser, why are there ‘true’ listings for ‘telemetry’ when you search about:config? Like I said there’s even an ID and server address mentioned. Shouldn’t these have ‘false’ settings and a universal fake ID? Otherwise, how is telemetry disabled in Tor Browser for Desktop?
The enabled telemetry settings shouldn’t matter, since the module as a whole is disabled. In about:config the setting to allow the module is blocked, so no user can activate it by accident. Look for toolkit.telemetry.enabled at your about:config page. Here you can find many of the default prefereences for tor browser with some comments.
