The behavior looks normal.

Quoting from the autossh man page:

"Startup behaviour

If the ssh session fails with an exit status of 1 on the very first try,

1.' will assume that there is some problem with syntax or the connection
setup, and will exit rather than retrying;

2.' There is a "starting gate" time. If the first ssh process fails
within the first few seconds of being started, autossh assumes that it
never made it "out of the starting gate", and exits. This is to handle
initial failed authentication, connection, etc. This time is 30 seconds
by default, and can be adjusted (see the AUTOSSH_GATETIME environment
variable below). If AUTOSSH_GATETIME is set to 0, then both behaviours
are disabled: there is no "starting gate", and autossh will restart even
if ssh fails on the first run with an exit status of 1. The "starting
gate" time is also set to 0 when the -f flag to autossh is used. "
