Yes, I meant "green-box" Auto mode, where most cameras hide and disable various configuration and manual operations.

Well, I of course could be wrong, but I suspect that EV/EC can be just as useful in that mode as well.

I personally don't see any reason/advantage for it not to be active in any "auto" (related) mode.

I can contribute that our Sony a5100 has 'Intelligent' and 'Superior' Auto, and these analyse the scene and make very good decisions on exposure etc.

ISO control is disabled in these modes, but 'background blur' (aperture), 'brightness' (EC) and 'color' (WB) as well as a couple of other adjustments are available.
