Good Day Paul,

Yep, sounds to me that it is a feature to avoid leaking your email's
metadata.  Whom discusses with who and on which topic is an
interesting information indeed, even without being able to decipher
what's inside the fold.

Not sure if it's worth the pain though, since mail servers use these
metadata to properly route your email anyway; but I may have missed
interesting novelties on autocrypt side.
