So, it turns out I had a typo in my configuration file and the “savestate_auto_save = true” was not actually doing what it was supposed to be doing. Now that I fixed it I am seeing the same thing as you, games are saving at the exact location I exit Retroarch rather than simply saving from where I saved in-game.

How are you exiting Retroarch? This discovery has me rather confused, as it would seem to imply that Retroarch actually was saving my games properly without any change to the configuration file.
