That's right :-) Basically, I agree that the Rust is probably automated... I separate it like this: manual if you write something in your program to free memory properly (smart pointers/free etc.) and automated if it is built-in into the runtime/language so that you don't to specifically care about it (unless your memory starts leaking, yeah).
