No, auto-learn learns only from mails with particularly high or low
scores. The default thresholds are

auto_learn_threshold_nonspam    -0.5
auto_learn_threshold_spam       10

In fact the default settings are

auto_learn_threshold_nonspam -2
auto_learn_threshold_spam 15

In all version of 2.5x. However since 2.54 the scores of many tests have been redone, (mainly removing or curtailing most negative scores) so I'm currently using -1 for ham and 12 for spam, as the defaults now learn hardly any ham...
