I can confirm the same behavior on a currect stretch installation.
Autologin will not log into a wayland session, while regular login does.
As a workaround I use "Timed Login" with a timeout of 1 second now which
also logs successfully into my default wayland session (the user session
starts on VT2 but that is a different story/bug).
