You are right -- but it seems we have indeed one more inconsistency.
Modify your example as follows:

% echo '(defun foo () (message "foo1"))' > ~/tmp/foo1/foo
% echo '(defun foo () (message "foo2"))' > ~/tmp/foo2/foo.el

M-: (let ((load-path (append '("~/tmp/foo1" "~/tmp/foo2") load-path)))
         (autoload 'foo "foo" nil t)

and I get "foo2" in *Messages*. 
But I get "foo1" if ~/tmp/foo1/foo is compressed.
Seems that autoload and load act differently.
