Too much auto layout?

Hey guys, I’m wondering in using the auto layout feature, how far it can be used in terms of whether it is right or wrong, recommended or it has potential take over by another designer.

The scenario was, I noticed my designer applying auto layout within layers, and auto layout within auto layout and the auto layout keep on apply until the full page. something like below:

Hope to get fellow designers around the world to comment and share your thoughts on this.

There is no such thing as right or wrong amount of auto layout. But this looks pretty normal to me. The only issues I see here are the lack of naming and the very small amount of components.

Ah yes, I’ve taken this screenshot from actual working files and removed the layer naming hence all the layers are default names. Thanks for comment, Gleb
