Internal disks are not mounted automatically in 12.04 or earlier releases,
and it doesn't look like that's changed for 12.10. You can mount manually
using Disk Utility, or by editing your /etc/fstab file for a more permanent
solution for any internal hard disks.

Autofs is not installed by default, so Unity must use some other package to
mount USB and CD drives. Do Kubuntu or Lubuntu have a file named
/etc/auto.master ?

If so, they use autofs...
