Not sure what the "automatic" has to do with anything - and how you know but in any case - it might have been me up until about a month ago.
I had my neck broken in an accident and had severe range of motion after for awhile - resulting in me not being able to turn my head enough to see behind me. Using the mirrors would let me back in safely enough to selected spaces but the idea of someone being behind me (a child?) when backing out wasn't something I was willing to risk.
If someone was intent enough on riding my ass into the parking area so it caused them to back up some too......well......
