Whenever a new shape is inserted on a slide in PowerPoint 2010 (or in any previous version), it is filled with a solid color and a outline by default (or something else depending on the Theme your presentation is based on). For example in a new blank presentation that I created, the shape is filled with a blue color and has a thin dark blue outline. These default shape attributes can be changed very easily in PowerPoint 2010.

Learn how to change the default shape attributes in PowerPoint 2010.
