Auto-steering actively harming position

My understanding is that avatars should auto-steer gradually to the best available position to gain draft.

I’ve just completed a ladder race during which the auto-steering was actively harmful to farcical levels.

Climbing the Sgurr 5x riders with steering were in front of me, and taking the inside of the corners, and then remaining on that side for the straight, before cutting across on the next corner.

Me, without steering, was being auto-steered to the completely opposite side of the road, getting zero draft. When they crossed over at the corner, rather than finally getting some draft, I was auto steered to the completely opposite side again. This happened for pretty much the whole climb, and when another rider with no steering came past he also was in opposite mode.

This cannot be how it is supposed to work?
