He sets the umask as 0027, yet the default permissions applied are 640 instead of my expected 750.

Is this a Redhat inquiry?

If so, it should be in Redhat and derivatives.

Let us know and I can move it there.

The calculations for files and directories are different, to calculate the final permissions you do this.
Directories: 0777 - umask = permissions
Files: 0666 - umask - permissions
