@MatsPalmgren I discussed this with @fantasai and @FremyCompany, and seemingly it can only be said that a value behaves as auto when specifying auto instead of that value would have no effect. In this case, a percentage is equivalent to auto while resolving the intrinsic track sizes, but once we know the size of the grid area, the percentage is no longer treated as auto. So the percentage doesn't behave as auto.

Therefore, we considered saying "contains a percentage", but this wouldn't cover things like a future `stretch`. So we decided for "depends on the size of its containing block".
