Check ownership of /Library/StartupItems/MySQLCOM after installing the preference pane, as above, and change if necessary. For me ownership was "root staff" (maybe because I didn't install it for all users?) and a GID of 0 is required for automatic start.

It won't work as installed. The fix has been posted by Jay Khimani:

Note: the DMG no longer includes separate items for the preference pane and the startup configuration. Instead, it appears that the preference pane is automatically enabled when running the main installation package, and the startup behavior of MySQL can then be toggled via that preference pane if desired.
