...Do you think the Godox / Meike flashes you mentioned do carry this functionality?

They don't have autothryistor ("auto") modes.

The Cactus KF36, which is a Vivitar 285HV clone has an autothyristor, but it doesn't swivel, have an LCD display, 1/8 power setting, zoom, or a standard sync connector, or...

The Canon 580EX II has an Ext.M mode, which is similar to Auto, just as the higher-end Nikon speedlights have "non-TTL Auto".  I think some of the older Olympus speedlights do as well.  But mostly this is a feature you only find on vintage speedlights, like, say, a Nikon SB-26 or SB-24.

The newer small flashes we're seeing for mirrorless typically do TTL instead of Auto.
