So I have a "dumb question" if I use Natural mode JPEG shooting and up the contrast and sharpness up 1, would it be mimicking the Auto gradation a little? Or am I totally off base here?

Yes, I think you are. Auto gradation tries to avoid blow out highlights and too dark shadow parts. So the resulting picture could be said to have lower contrast, but in reality it's mostly the extreme highlights and shadows that might be affected. Anyway - it won't have higher contrast!
