It's been a short while since I set up a new account from the start, but as I recall, auto-tagging was turned off by default.

Another phrase to confirm this default off setting is the step 10 from linking adwords and analytics described here :

"If you've already enabled auto-tagging in your AdWords account, skip to the next step. The account linking process will enable auto-tagging for you. Click Advanced settings only if you need to manually tag your AdWords links."
