Yurik added a comment.

It turns out [AUTO_LANGUAGE] is NOT a new feature of SPARQL language, nor is it even a server side operation that picks the best available language as the name might imply. Instead, it is [CURRENT_USER_LANGUAGE] substitute. The word "AUTO" is too broad and confusing.

Code: https://github.com/wikimedia/wikidata-query-gui/blob/facdfe5843dbd864d4a230e56ccaefdafb0fc277/wikibase/queryService/api/Sparql.js#L473

I documented it, but really think the keyword should be something else, as it is misleading into thinking that this is the long asked for functionality of "supply a list of languages, but if none of them are available, just pick something" - because showing Qnumber is always worse than showing text. (we can leave the current one as well, but not advertise it). Ideas: [UI_LANGUAGE], [USER_LANGUAGE]
