Why is autofs trying to mount these directories?

becauase both directories are defined as active in the default
configuration for autofs:
/etc/auto.master
which references
/etc/auto.net
/etc/auto.misc


What would they be used for if he (or she) succeeded?
to automount things as needed at a systemwide level.  Potentially very
useful on multiple user systems on large unix-y networks with nfs
shares. Marginally less useful on desktop oriented systems with
primarily a single user logged in at one time.

I rather like to use it to mount ISOs on demand.
