I'm afraid I couldn't understand the basic theory of auto-generated fields at all, from either the descriptions or the examples. Are the "auto" fields physically inserted into the database? Or synthesized on the fly and only exist dynamically? Or maybe both happen in different circumstances?

In the summary for recfix, --auto is said to be "destructive". How so?
