I'll admit I never checked for Kate but for the past 2.5 decades "autosave" has always meant "save the file automatically" in the productivity software I used. As I said, Kate *also* has a cache file where unsaved changes are saved, which is always active and would correspond to what you think autosave means.

I'm not interested in going any further down your rabbit hole. Have fun there - maybe you'll find your own Wonderland.
