It looks like adding:
depends on AUTOFS_FS = n && AUTOFS_FS != m

to autofs4/Kconfig results in autofs4 appearing under the autofs entry
if AUTOFS_FS is not set which should call attention to it.

It also results in AUTOFS4_FS=n for any setting of AUTOFS_FS except n.

Together with some words about it in the AUTOFS4_FS help it should be
enough to raise awareness of the change.
