Samsung Android Marshmallow + autostart apps on boot

I bought Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro SM-A9100 with latest official Marshmallow firmware based on Android 6.0.1 and latest NANO Open Gapps.
The problem is that all my apps that should start automatically after reboot do not start.
I use such apps as:
•      Alarm Clock Xtreme
•      Call Recorder
•      Ultimate Rotate Control
Ultimate Rotate Control installs it’s own accessibility service but it become always off after phone reboot.
In «Options - > Application manager –> permissions menu» all these apps have permission to start on boot, but they won’t.
Even when I installed «Autostart and Stay» app from Google play market, and toggle option – start on boot. This apps also can’t autostart, and the toggle In options switches off after reboot.
Could you please explain – is it possible to start apps automatically on boot in new Samsung Marshmallow firmware?
I’ve googled very much on this topic and can’t figure out how to fix it.

P.S. I have no problem auto start on my old Samsung Galaxy NOTE 3 with official Android 4 or official Android 5.

By default, app can and will start automatically on boot in new Samsung Marshmallow firmware unless such apps have been listed in "App power saving".

You can go to the above setting by:-

Go to Settings -> Battery -> Click DETAIL under "App power saving"

If you see your desired apps are listed as "Save power", it will not start automatically on boot.

Just click the app and click "Turned off" for "App power saving".

App power saving - Rotate
By default, Android 6.0.1 will detect and locate apps which consume too much battery power within the last 7 days and list them automatically under "App power saving".

Thank you for the answer!
Unfortunately I have no "App power saving" menu in Battery option.  But even after totally clear firmware install with followed opengapps installing the behaviour is the same - no autorun on boot.

opengapps should have changed the stock firmware.

My Samsung S5 is running stock firmware of Android 6.0.1 and there is no problem on auto start.

But for this phone the stock firmware doesn't include Google Apps, I mean there is no Google Play Store without gapps

I see.

Your Samsung Galaxy A9 Pro SM-A9100 is a parallel import goods from Mainland China and it is not using the official stock firmware which includes Google Play Store.

I need more information regarding the exact build of the Android OS before I can search for a solution.

Goto Settings -> About device

Post back the findings inside.
