I read those notices from release team for a few times.
Maybe the word "automatically" is misleading, but from what I experienced,
I feel some packages got unblocked without filing unblock BTS request.

"You must contact us to ensure the fix is unblocked - do not rely on
the release team to notice on their own."
(from https://release.debian.org/stretch/freeze_policy.html)

AFAICS, the release team will find those proper unblock-able packages
on their own, but other developers should not suppose release team will
find all such cases, so it's always safer to send the unblock request.
