Just tried, and a new MIDI track still connects automatically but only 
to the outputs. Input connection settings seem to be respected. This 
fixes it:

libs/ardour/session.cc:1837 (diff attached)

this ...
if ((*t) == DataType::MIDI ||
     Config->get_output_auto_connect() &
     AutoConnectPhysical) {

should be ...
if ((*t) == DataType::MIDI &&
     Config->get_output_auto_connect() &
     AutoConnectPhysical ) {

If you are thinking of reorganizing those particular preferences, I 
would suggest a separate "Connections" tab and for clarity, separate 
Audio and MIDI connection preferences within the same tab.

fair enough, but my concerns are (were) with outputs
