Yes, the automatic WLAN connection does not work with EAP connections.
That's a feature which should be changed.

I faintly recall that it was possible to save passwords for the user
certificates. But I haven't used EAP-TLS for a long time so I can be

But even if you manage to save the certificate passwords, the device
won't automatically connect to an EAP network :/
