unload-feature restores the (autoload ...) form that is present in the
autoload property of the symbol.  As I understand it, that autoload
property only gets set by do_autoload.  do_autoload is called when an
autoloaded function is first called by the lisp interpreter.
(do_autoload also loads the file that defines that function.)  So if
something other than do_autoload loads a file that defines a function
that had an autoload definition before, that old autoload definition
won't be recorded.

Maybe we can shift recording the old autoload definition from
do_autoload to Fload?

Don't you mean auctex-unload-hook?
