I think you're confused about what auto-props does: its only purpose
is to run quietly run 'svn propset' when the 'svn add' or 'svn import'
commands are run. That's it, nothing more. It has no effect on
eol-translation at any time. The confusion here is that many people
use the feature to automatically set the 'svn:eol-style' property when
files are added. But auto-props in and of itself is wholly unrelated
to eol-translation. It might be setting random properties, like "color
= green"!

If a file has the svn:eol-style property attached, then eols will be
translated. It's that simple. Autoprops is not related.

The '--native-eol' switch forcibly converts any file with the
svn:eol-style property to a specific line ending.

svn-load-dirs.pl is sensitive to whether your config file has
auto-props "on" or "off" only because it occasionally adds new files to
the repository. So switching auto-props on and off will affect whether
svn-load-dirs.pl is importing new files with svn:eol-style.
