You are not alone. I have pages of characters I've built to 20 but never used, I simply do it because I can.
To stay on topic... if I'm playing Sentinel I let them auto-level the droids (Though I do T3's levels on Peragus), because I'd already be covering their skills and they have a pretty limited feat list. With the non-droids, I take control because I pay more attention to them, plus I sometimes need to pump up their Wisdom so their force powers aren't entirely rubbish, something which I don't think the default builds would do for most of them.
