No, i can agree that autobeaming should (or "would be great to") work in
cadenzas; but i can not imagine how to describe expected behavior.

_How_ this should work?

This can be a valid issue report (most probably enhancement/feature request);
please, could you modify your initial "minimal example" -- include some
explicit autobeaming rule[1] and describe what you expected to have.
(I hardly can imagine which autobeaming defaults should be in cadenzas.)


 1. Yes, i can see that all notes in your example are beamed together, but i
    don't know what should be instead, to be precise .(
