Autopilot and mountain passes

We took our new LR MY on a day trip to figure out how to travel in a Tesla, and apart from the obvious adjustment to charging frequently and just enough to get to the next charger, driving across a mountain pass on autopilot was a bit of an experience. To initiate a turn the Autopilot would drive the car full speed forward, suddenly realize that it’s about to cross the median, brake, turn, accelerate and repeat the same thing with the next turn. To be fair, the method kind of worked, but it felt like the autopilot was always late slowing down into the turn. I guess I was expecting it to use the map to optimize the upcoming turn, but it seemed like it was purely relying on sensors. Is this how it works?
