I'll confirm for PPS and PPSX and remove needsUXEval. Requested is also how MSO behaves.
This is a sort of regression from LO 3.3, because OO didn't start automatically for PPS.
With all that, a duplicate.

This is by design (although Powerpoint doesn't autoplay the format is for presentation only). See also https://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/251697/how-to-disable-showing-pps-as-presentation/
The proposed countdown in bug 74270 sounds like a good enhancement.
