Do you mean "Auto save config" or "Auto save project"?
I don't think it is a good idea to have "Auto save config" enabled. If you enable it, then whatever configuration changes you happen to make (perhaps accidentally) will be saved as default configuration. It is very likely that sooner or later your configuration will become so messed that nothing works as expected. It is safer to manually save configuration when you really want that happen.
Especially now that there are projects and file type specific configuration, there is no reason to save all configuration changes as default.
It is better to have a simple general purpose configuration as default, and save all the other configurations in file type specific configurations.

How many files you have in the project does not have significance. If you change setting of one file, then only that one file is changed. If you have the "Config all buffers" checked, then the setting you change affects all the open files (but not other files in the project).
When you open another file in the project, the settings depend on the default settings and on the file type specific settings.

I think it is best to only change the default configuration in clean state, without any projects or any files open, as follows:
1. Start Vedit. Do not open any files or any project.
2. Change configuration settings as needed.
3. Ensure that "config all buffers" is *not* checked.
4. Save the configuration.
