For btrfs, it's raid0 data, raid1 metadata.
For current default (lvm+ext4) it's linear/concat.

It's straightforward to do data 'single' which is closer to the
current default. But no matter what, you lose a drive and you can't
boot. As a UI/UX it might need to be reevaluated what the user expects
to happen when they pick two devices and automatic partitioning. I
would argue it's ambiguous and it'd be better to only allow one device
to be selected for auto/default path. But the current UI sorta makes
this difficult, and hard to convey. You're encouraged to pick the
device(s) you want first rather than a path (auto, custom, advanced),
where it's legit to pick multiple devices for custom.

I'm not sure anyone does multiple device auto partition installs though.
