Um, if you understand current limits and multiple rails, then I don't understand your question.

Oh! Maybe I do. Obviously, any company could advertise a feature they don't implement. I don't know enough to know how common that is.

And any company that claims to "automatically merge rails when needed" is saying that they "automatically disable the per-rail overcurrent shutdown before it triggers", which is a stupid way if saying "our per-rail overcurrent alarms are disabled", which is most easily implemented by simply omitting them altogether.

But ones that have a switch could do something. Whether they do or not is not something I can answer.
