There is a typo in my other reply, it should read ...

[root at moonstudio ~]# grep "org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount" -A70 /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks2.policy | grep -v description | grep -v message
  <action id="org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount">
    <defaults>
      <allow_any>auth_admin</allow_any>
      <allow_inactive>auth_admin</allow_inactive>
      <allow_active>yes</allow_active>
    </defaults>
--
  <action id="org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount-system">
    <defaults>
      <allow_any>auth_admin</allow_any>
      <allow_inactive>auth_admin</allow_inactive>
      <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active>
    </defaults>
  </action>

  <action id="org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount-other-seat">

      <allow_active>auth_admin_keep</allow_active>
    </defaults>
  </action>

  
  <action id="org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-fstab">
[root at moonstudio ~]#

I don't use USB-sticks, but I suspect

<allow_active>yes</allow_active> </defaults>

does the trick, perhaps a "yes" for the other lines of
"<action id="org.freedesktop.udisks2.filesystem-mount">"
is required too.
