I also had the impression that "behaves as auto" was contextual, but I was told that the definition of "behaves as auto" is that the behavior of the value is completely indistinguishable from `auto`, and for grid items percentages are only treated like auto at some points, so they don't behave as auto. IIRC, @FremyCompany was strongly convinced about this, and @fantasai agreed.

Can you clarify why you think this definition is incompatible? I had the impression that percentages being treated as `auto` at some points and different than `auto` at other points is a relatively new thing of grid and flex layout.

Yes, that's why we used "depends on the size of its containing block", we wanted to include percentages. Just checking "behaves as auto" wasn't including percentages.
