Is this what you are talking about?
When this option is specified, the X server loads all video
driver modules, probes for available hardware, and writes out
an initial XF86Config(5x) file based on what was detected.
This option currently has some problems on some platforms, but
in most cases it is a good way to bootstrap the configuration
process. This option is only available when the server is run
as root (i.e, with real-uid 0).
