It has been some time since I file this issue, it seems somebody else also have this issue[1].

After some debugging, I find find-file-visit-truename must be nil inside autoload-find-generated-file in order to get the correct path.

I haven't found which commit introduce this issue, the last commit here is from larsmagne

- https://github.com/emacs-mirror/emacs/commit/6f36b67e4146ef4610916b7903fd292e1308daf5#diff-92d5169948d378056770f5d1da4c8a70bd4fff0e9d92fe87fa21dd2a8303c13f

Maybe he can share some ideas about this issue.

I build emacs-28 branch with commit 3f998a3fc8 on macOS, it seems autoloads load-file is different from emacs 27 when package-install. Take undo-tree as an example:

;; 27
(autoload 'undo-tree-mode "undo-tree" "some docstring" t nil)

;; 28
(autoload 'undo-tree-mode "../../../../../../.config/emacs/elpa/undo-tree-0.7.5/undo-tree" "some
docstring" t nil)

After some debugging, I found this issue is related with symlink.

I usually put all my dotfiles in a git repo(emacs included), and soft link to ~/.config/emacs, then
load file is wrong as above.
If I put config directly at ~/.config/emacs, load file is the same as Emacs 27.
