It allows AUCTeX to be aware of style files and multi-files. The default
is "auto/" in the working directory. However you set the directory
yourself. I have the settings:

(setq TeX-auto-local "/path/to/auto/dir") ;; Sets /auto/ directory.
(setq TeX-auto-save t) ;; Also sets lisp files to save in /auto/.

If you want to switch it off then try (setq TeX-auto-save nil). I have
never used that myself, so I don't know how successful it might be.

Best wishes
