Default Hi! A question about openbsd security

I'm a self confessed noob so this may be a silly question but I noticed when i tried running the command
SHUTDOWN NOW
it just logged me out. At which point the system stated it was going into security level 0 and allowed a passwordless / usernameless login!

I thopught that was strange for an OS focused on security?

When it allows the passwordless login I decided to take a look at the file .CSHRC
So i ran the head command and noticed this
UMASK 022

Which again I thought was strange because I got taught to set the umask permissions to 700 as standard!? I thought openbsd would not do this - is there a reason for it and when I log in as root is that the file I should edit for global permissions?
