Dear Er
Not worked on e tabs , may not able to say . But in Staad , all combinations are input thru keyboard.
In big steel buildings of steel plants , the loadings DL, LL, Crane loads , EQ Load , Wind Load  , all combinations are about  to the extent of over 150 loading cases.
Auto command do not exist in staad, I think , may be newer versions add it .

I suppose by auto command , the input and out put needs to be checked for same input data using the auto command in one file and combinations input in other file and results can be compared., If these match , then auto command is ok for a given problem.

Best wishes

If the load assignment as per Etabs (ie, Dead load, live lid, reducible LL,) etc are correctly and appropriately given, the default load combination in Etabs are OK.
But, it is always better to cross check, or give the combinations ourselves.
