The obvious expected behaviour would be for it to have the same
behavious as unsetting the parameter after the module is loaded.  But a
quick tests suggests that doesn't work for readonly parameters, for one
--- all that would happen is that would produce an error when the module
is loaded, which doesn't really make much sense.  So in that case, at
least, the behaviour above is as logical as anything.

Documenting the current behaviour is perfectly respectable.  The
autoload flag effective means the parameter behaviour defers to the
module.  Remember, you can use zmodload -F to manipulate which features
are provided by a module, although not at the point of declaring
autoloads --- some sort of autoloadable feature set might be another
way of doing this.
