Currently authors (owners and administrators) for a group document can configure auto populate settings.  In an environment where group ownership is delegated to the business owners, it isn't desired to have them to be able to enable the auto-populate feature for the group.  If auto-populate is enabled and no home server is selected, the group members field is emptied when the updater runs the auto-populate task.  Groups then need to be restored from backup.

Discussed this today and was going to post this as an idea.

I called regarding this and they said that on the 8.5.1 template there will be a warning pop up when modifying that field. I said not good enough, we need a way to control that ability from the users, because they have blanked out a couple of our groups already. Then they said to enable extended access and lock down that field. Have not tried that yet, but this is definitely something that should be ouf of the box.
