That looks a lot more complicated than the solution I found a couple of

contains is:

ENV{ID_FS_USAGE}=="filesystem|other|crypto", ENV{UDISKS_FILESYSTEM_SHARED}="1"

(that's one line, in case it gets wrapped).

That seems to have had no effect whatsoever: it still doesn't auto-mount until somebody signs on to Gnome, and when it does, it auto-mounts under the user's subdirectory of /media, the same as before.

That's odd. It has worked as intended here since 2015 (Xfce, currently Debian Testing).
