But there's something wrong - auto is still given on attribute.html, but the
way it's used there it doesn't seem to be an attribute.

'auto' was originally and continues to be a storage class. It's the default storage class if another one isn't specified, so the following are equivalent:

auto int x = 5;
int x = 5;

Type inference happens via the omission of a type specifier, so auto is mostly used in this context, ie:

auto x = 5; // int variable with a storage class of 'auto'
const x = 5; // int variable with a storage class of 'const'
