I don't think that they are auto-selected.  My guess as to what is happening is that we are never switching views away from the Recording, which is why it stays visible.  From what I remember, this is controlled by CanvasTabContentView.prototype.restoreStateFromCookie (and saveStateToCookie), so if we want to do this then we probably just want to modify those functions.

Personally, if I am viewing a recording (which is pretty independent of the page itself), I wouldn't want the recording to be deselected/hidden if I refresh the page.  Due to the exportability of Recordings, I don't see them as being "restricted" to a particular instance of a given page.  I see them more as a snapshot in time of something that happened, and WebInspector is just the means by which we can view that snapshot.  I can see the argument against this train of thought, however, so I could go either way.
