To be precise, gfortran does:

"When writing a namelist, if no |DELIM=| is specified, by default a 
double quote is used to delimit character strings. If -std=F95, F2003, 
or F2008, etc, the delim status is set to 'none'. Defaulting to quotes 
ensures that namelists with character strings can be subsequently read 
back in accurately."
