There are two different "Automatically Update Styles" settings. Tony is talking about the setting that can be applied to each individual style, and he is right. You don't want that one set, ever. I can't think of a use for it.
However, the "Automatically update document styles" setting for templates is applied when you attach a template to a document and only changes styles when the template is attached. John DOES want that one. Otherwise when he changes the template style the corresponding document style will not change.
