Geofence and Auto flight mode

When in auto flight mode for a survey does ths geofence work? Lets say i have a 1000m geofence and i plan an auto mission with more than 1000 m distance. Will the geofence get enabled after 1000m?

The geofence action will kick in regardless of whether the flightmode is Auto or otherwise.
Either increase the geofence distance or change the breach action.
