Steps to Reproduce:
- Use an account with the "autopatrol"-flag (in this case Nico @ da-wp).
- Use the help panel "Ask a question feature" (in this case this question).
- Despite the account having the autopatrolled flag, the edit will show up as unpatrolled, and will need to be patrolled by someone with the "patrol"-flag (in this case the patrol made by SimmeD @ on 2 March 2021).
- The edit made by the "Ask a question"-feature should automatically be marked as patrolled, due to the user having the "autopatrol"-flag.
I am unaware of any documentation stating that this is intentional, and am therefore reporting it as a bug.
