I have all that automatic crap on both of my newer vehicles. The first thing I did was when I got them home, was read the manual, and learn how to shut it all off.
Auto headlights, lane departure, (talk about annoying), auto door locks, auto dimming lights and mirrors, and a bunch of other crap. Automakers put all that junk on cars because some people like it. At least some who are fascinated by all those non essential tinkertoys.
But with that said, you don't have to live with any of it if you don't want to. Perhaps at some point they'll be a permanent feature you won't be able to get rid of. But I don't know of ANY new or newer vehicles where you can't go to the screen, and start shutting all that crap off.
You can even get around the seat belt dinging by purchasing these. (Although that doesn't seem like the smartest thing to do. Seeing as not wearing a seatbelt is both dangerous and costly if you get into a wreck, or get pulled over).
