I seem to be unable to reproduce this.  You are saying that just
starting Emacs with the above settings causes the
auto-save-list-file-name to appear in the file system?  It doesn't
seem to happen here.

In any case, you supposed to customize auto-save-list-file-prefix, not
auto-save-list-file-name directly.  Setting auto-save-list-file-prefix
to nil will prevent Emacs from initializing auto-save-list-file-name.

Thanks.
