No and nor should they. Since the emphasize settings can be changed very often and you don't want schitzo workers. If you are using the emphasize buttons as permament settings then basically, you are using them wrong. Pretty much everything which effects the AI also effects player automation and advice, possibly not exactly the same as it does the AI (ie the AI wont always get the same "Advice" as the player does) but it certainly influences the advice given. For example, the research suggestions will change (ie it'll suggest Iron Working if you have Jungle) but the AI research selection is different to the Humans Advice, since the advice for the human only looks at the available techs while the AI tech selection looks deeper - an AI might beeline to Meditation through Mysticism. Anyway the auto worker performs in almost exactly the same way as the AI's do (altough AI don't use auto-route or auto-improve city and have personality modifiers), the Blue Circles actually give valid advice (I use them myself sometimes because they use my logic anyway, heh).
