Yes they should. It's a very good feature and I realised it's importance even more after being a father and kids growing up. The Child lock can't be remembered every single time.
Car companies here follow each other. Like Honda followed Toyota with Cruise as Corolla was the first PKDM to offer it. Honda has just given the AUTOLOCK feature in the new Civic 10th Generation. Hopefully soon enough it's coming into Corolla as well. Maybe with the mid cycle facelift as they just did some features addition.
