Hi there, welcome back to WordPress Trac!

We have never turned on auto-updates for any theme. Ever. It seems way too dangerous. People modify their themes. Plugins tend to not be directly changed.

This is just my opinion, updating themes directly loses any customizations they may have made to files in the theme folder. It's risky. Very, very risky.
