Auto mode?

Everyone here is talking about of not using the auto mode.
I've never used it myself but here is one question: what is the difference in using the auto mode or manual mode with letting the car to downshift itself when coming to a complete stop?
Isn't this method pretty similar with the auto mode?

Well, a service manager at my dealer gave me the exact opposite advice, and I asked him at least twice to verify since it seemed to go opposite what everyone here is saying. He told me whenever you get into stop and go type driving, ALWAYS go right into Auto, and relayed experience of people who burned clutches completely out in one traffic jam staying in manual.

I'd be a skeptic. That's the opposite of what other service managers are telling people (see, for example, ) and the opposite of pretty much everything every tech/mechanic on this board has ever said.
