Thanks for the ping on this lnog standing bug @Tronde.
I updated the state accordingly.
If there is a change to be identified since Xenial->Bionic one could try to SRU
fix it in Xenial.
But I took a (quick) look and found nothing obvious.
There are major changes like going from sysV init in /etc/init.d/autofs to a
native systemd service in /lib/systemd/system/autofs.service.
One would need to debug if there is something that can be brought into the
systemV init to fix it.
I appreciate your former steps to reproduce, but they failed for me :-/
Without having more time debugging why I can't reproduce atm I'd need to ask
you (or others) to debug what the missing new bit might be to fix up xenial.
