Autostart locations in KDE4

Recently I found that knetworkmanager wasn't starting up when I logged
into KDE. I tried looking for any mention of it in the 'startup and
shutdown' control centre module, but no luck. Eventually I found a tip
on a forum that I had to set 'Autostart=true' in

So my question is, what's the status of the autostart stuff: 
Shouldn't it all be configurable through the standard control centre
module which stores its settings in the standard (~/.config/autostart)
Does KDE go scanning through ~/.kde4/share/config/ looking for
'Autostart=' in rc-files?
