Searching the documentation I find references to various commands that turn on "auto-select mode"; however, there are no matches for "auto-select" other than those commands, and no matches for "auto select" (without the hyphen) at all. I'm sure I once knew what this was, but I don't now. What is it? Please check that the answer to this is in the documentation even though I am not finding it, and if it is, tell me where.

I think this is referring to extending the selection automatically as the caret moves, without requiring any modifier keys to be down.  The term currently isn't clarified in the docs other than the fact that auto-select is mentioned in the context of describing command names like start-select-block and start-select-line.
