Where is /usr/share/applications/defaults.list on Arch?

There is no defaults.list in Arch. defaults.list is a legacy file which is not recommended any more and Arch is a rolling-release which only keeps the latest and greatest. It's replaced by *mimeapps.list and this could be verified from

https://specifications.freedesktop.org/mime-apps-spec/latest/ar01s02.html

To verify it more, this man page mentions explicitly,

It will also attempt a last-resort fallback to the legacy file    
$XDG_DATA_HOME/applications/defaults.list
