Group Policy for AutoPlay doesn't lock the AutoPlay settings in Control Panel or the Settings app in Windows 10 Version 1607

Symptoms
When an administrator sets the Turn off AutoPlay policy in Group Policy, a user can still access the AutoPlay settings in Control Panel and in the Settings app. This behavior is unexpected. Typically, users are locked out of the UI if a policy is controlling the corresponding setting.
Resolution
This behavior is by design. The Turn off AutoPlay policy takes precedence over any settings change that are made in the AutoPlay UI. 
More information
This behavior is standard in Windows 7 and later versions of Windows.
