List buffer, and Dired buffers showing complete local
directories. Dired buffers do not auto-revert as a result of
changes in subdirectories or in the contents, size, modes, etc.,
of files. You may still sometimes want to revert them manually.
Use this option with care since it could lead to excessive reverts. For more information, see Info node `(emacs-xtra)Autorevert'."
Note also that for some non-file buffers the check whether the
buffer needs updating may be imperfect, due to efficiency
considerations, and may not take all information listed in the
buffer into account. Hence, a non-nil value for this option does
not necessarily make manual updates useless for non-file buffers.
To find out to which buffers this option currently applies, as
well as for further details, see Info node `(emacs-xtra)Autorevert'."
