I can't reproduce this either.  AUCTeX doesn't have a style for
standalone package, hence the problem must be somewhere else.  Can you
please start Emacs with the minimal config you described in your other
message, load the .tex file and hit immediately `C-h e'?  Check the
files AUCTeX loads, maybe that gives you an idea where to look.

Best, Arash
