The problem being that the default is "checked" and has always been "checked."  The probability of this being unchecked is vanishingly small.

The problem is that the user has a completely inaccurate idea of how autocomplete works, period.  If they believe that typing first and last initial of an individual that is already in autocomplete will find them, unless they so happen to use that setup in front of their email address as the name, they're mistaken, and they've been mistaken for as long as I can remember.
