It seems to be a policy kit issue here. Can you check the policykit
rules of Xubuntu and or Ubuntu Gnome to check wether there is a rule
missing for Lubuntu

I guess this should work albeit its taken from the Arch Wiki:

I am not sure about autologin though. This might cause entering the user
password as authentication. (If autologin is not enabled it
authenticates through the password entered in the login manager).

In my opinion this is a bug. Policykit should only ask for password when
you want to create a "system wide" connection.
