Autoyast uses the same size for swap as the proposal code
in interactive YaST. So far I did not get requests to change that.

Problem is that requirements for swap for traditional swap usage
and for hibernation are quite different. For normal swap, 2G
(the current upper limit) is plenty and any real-world system
really using more than 2G swap would be more or less unusable.

For hibernation the swap size should indeed be larger.
But this is mostly useful for laptops while I would assume
most autoyast installations are on other systems.

So far I do not plan to change size determined by "auto".
What could be done, would be adding something like
"hibernate" keyword in addition to "auto", which would
Autoyast make choose maximum of "auto" size and memory

Maybe it would be interesting to raise this question on
"opensuse-autoinstall" mailing list to get some more input
from other users.
