For CSS 2.1, I believe the behavior is described in [10.3.7 Absolutely positioned, non-replaced elements](https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visudet.html#abs-non-replaced-width) which states that when all of `top`, `right`, `bottom`, and `left` are `auto` (which is their initial value), the element is positioned as if it has `position: static`. So they don't need to be set in this situation unless author specifies something.
