There is a requirement to have a minimum of 1 FA per 50 PAX. Think of them as general FA who take care of all the passengers, and then if you want a better rating you can assign additional FA to specific class.
The legal requirement is why it’s automatic, the alternative would be coding so that the plane cannot fly without the minimum number of f/a. As far as I am concerned it’s fine, as I always determine the number of flight attendants anyway. The plane is only delivered with flight attendants, if you choose to use the comfort feature. Otherwise they are only hired once you install the seats. I don’t see it as a problem.
