What it actually says is:

  # governed by ifplugd ... do not use allow-hotplug or auto options

An ifplugd process is only being run for eth0. Please study the second
image on the same page.

"allow-hotplug" relates to the wlan0 interface (which is not being
monitored by an ifplugd process).

Things become a lot clearer on turning over a page by using the link at
the bottom of the referenced page.
