I think having to start the service manually is a separate bug which
I've filed as #823153.
As a workaround you can run "systemctl enable mediatomb".

I don't know what's wrong there I'm afraid (and I don't use mediatomb
that much). Have you checked the config files to see why mediatomb is
reading those files (/usr/local/share/datos is a strange directory
name) and does the file actually exist?
