The auto trim is to keep the plane in the trim position. Steve indicated that when he turn off the A/P, the plane is not trimmed and he has to manually trim it back.

Do you know if it always trims it in one direction?

Do this test: Deliberately trim it off to the stick-right side, then engage the autopilot. If the autopilot trims it further right, the wires are crossed.
