Have you actually set this property on those files? If so, have you
confirmed that the property isn't working by checking out a fresh WC
to be absolutely certain?

I'm not "suggesting" it - I'm *saying* it. Auto-props are a mechanism
by which you can have properties set on files automatically at the
time you add them to a WC, or import into a repository. If the file is
already in the repository, then the auto-props won't do a thing on it.
