Youtube overriding Safari's autoplay settings?

Hi,

I hate videos on websites that automatically start playing when loading the site. I don't want that to happen. Never.
So I am very happy with Safari's new Autoplay settings. Obviously, I set it to "never Auto-Play" for all websites, including Youtube. However, I just noticed that Youtube will just go ahead and play a video when I click it. It just disregards Safari's settings. Sometimes, it will work correctly when I reload the site, but when I click the next video it just autoplays again.
Anyone else seeing this? Is youtube doing something that ignores the autoplay setting?
