Can you please try below XML?

<form>
  <label>Default Year</label>
  <search>
    <query>| makeresults | eval current_year = strftime(now(), "%Y")</query>
    <done>
      <set token="current_year">$result.current_year$</set>
    </done>
  </search>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="field1">
      <label>Year Selection</label>
      <choice value="2019">2019</choice>
      <choice value="2020">2020</choice>
      <choice value="2021">2021</choice>
      <default>$current_year$</default>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
