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?

No neutral required at a light as long as your foot is on the brake.

Avoid getting into that bad habit (neutral at light)... Nothing more annoying and embarrassing than the light runs green and you've forgotten to shift it into gear. Always feel like an a$$ revving your engine to 7K and then having to wait for it to spool down to then put it into drive and take off.

Again, no wear on clutch when in gear at a stop with your foot on the brake
