I modified the LibreOffice 3.5.1 .MSI to register all mso types, but it is not defaulting the save as type to Microsoft Word, Power Point, Excel, etc.. Anyone have any insight as to what property these can be found in?

From the Deployment and Migration page on the wiki:
MSIEXEC silent installation doesn't allow control of all parameters.
...default format for documents available in GUI under Tools -> Options-Load/Save -> General -> Always save as cannot be set during silent installation.
But don't give up yet -- there is a way to hack this into place:
These settings are mostly personal and stored in a specific file
registrymodifications.xcu. So, if we replace this file after installation with a similar file with the correct above settings, we can control the selected feature.
The wiki page goes on to explain how to set all of that up, but that's the general gist of it. Visit the wiki for all the gritty details.

Menu/Tools/Options/Load-Save/General - Always save as.
But there is always much better and strongly recommended to work with (ODF) LibreOffice native format files, and only save or export in Ms format to send at other people.
