I think they are different.

Generally speaking, the initialization of a declaration is handled in
gcc/cp/decl.c:cp_finish_decl. In that function, G++ detects if the type
of declaration uses 'auto'. If yes, auto-deduction is performed by
If auto is used in the context of a template, then I guess
auto-deduction happens during the substitution of template arguments for
template parameters. For that case, you can look at
gcc/cp/pt.c:tsubst_decl. Look for do_auto_deduction in there.
I hope this helps.
