Default Automatic headlight question

When the headlights are set to automatic, and sensor does not turn the headlights (low beam) on, is it equivalent of having it the "2nd" setting (the one above auto)?

Also, this is a Canadian Impreza, and I'm pretty sure the day time lights automatically turn on when the car is put into drive (regardless of the headlight setting).

I'll have to check on mine. I don't think so, I think only the dimmed high-beams are the ones that come on in that case (as if "o" was selected, ie. the one below "AUTO"), but I rarely put it in that setting. I usually leave mine all the way on, or all the way off. (It's a habit I picked up from driving my Integra.)

My main concern is driving in the rain (during the daytime) or similar conditions, I want to make sure my tail lights are on.

Switch it "On"; otherwise, the taillights may not come on if there is sufficient lighting to deactivate the headlights.

Agreed.

I tried earlier this evening to see if the same lights as the 2nd setting would come on for "AUTO", but while it seemed that they didn't while parked (handbrake engaged), I couldn't tell for certain while in motion... because I was in the car and there was nobody else around to help spot it.

I'll try again tomorrow, but I suspect by then you'll have your answer.
