If you’ve downloaded a whole playlist, videos may download automatically. However, if you download videos individually, you shouldn’t see automatically downloaded content.
It also depends on when you last interacted with the playlist. If you’ve watched a video from a playlist in the last 30 days and a new video is added to that playlist, the new video will download automatically. If you’ve downloaded that playlist in the last 30 days, the video may also download automatically.
