The command creates file /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20auto-upgrades:

    APT::Periodic::Update-Package-Lists "1";
    APT::Periodic::Unattended-Upgrade "1";

And that makes unattended-upgrade run daily. (As I wrote in my earlier
message.)

Actually it's the cron (Debian 8) or systemd unit
apt-daily.{timer,service} (Debian 9) that runs a script that in turn
will run unattended-upgrade if those APT::Periodic settings are set.
