In my work van (6 speed auto), cruise control almost always keeps the torque converter locked, whereas using my foot, the torque converter is often not. However, it will not always shift into a higher gear by itself. I can use paddle shifters to push it into 6th at 39mph while it won't automatically shift to 6th under most conditions until 45-48mph.
