Hi, if you split configuration and data by setting data_directory, postgresql.auto.conf is writen to the data directory (/var/lib/postgresql/9.4/main in Debian), but tried to be read from the etc directory (/etc/postgresql/9.4/main).
One place to fix it would be in ProcessConfigFile in src/backend/utils/misc/guc-file.l:162 by always setting CallingFileName = NULL in src/backend/utils/misc/guc-file.l:162, but that breaks later in AbsoluteConfigLocation() when data_directory is NULL. (As the comment in ProcessConfigFile says.) I'm not sure where to break that dependency loop - the fix itself seems easy, just don't tell to look for postgresql.auto.conf next to ConfigFileName, but in the data_directory.
