I think that setting the value to the maximum (from the setting, which is as-remembered in 0-RTT) is the most consistent.  It also has the value of saving a few bytes.

The case where the maximum increases after 0-RTT is a case that we need to address more thoroughly.  We have to acknowledge explicitly how this is acceptable: no evictions of unacknowledged entries are permitted, which also means no rollover of the modulo-2*MaxEntries encoding for largest reference.  This is complicated.
