[PVE-User] allow-ovs vs auto

If I create an OVS Bridge with the Autostart option using pve's web
interface, the following configuration will be generated:

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet manual
ovs_type OVSBridge

OTOH, the examples given on the wiki website
<https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Open_vSwitch> use the following format:

allow-ovs vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet manual
  ovs_type OVSBridge

So, I want to know if the "allow-ovs" and "auto" keywords are
equivalent in the context for my above scenario. Any hints will be
appreciated.
