The way it works now is:
1. You build a road or railway
2. You place a depot next to the road or railway and it automatically connects to it
But if you do it in reverse order so:
1. You build a depot first
2. You place a road or railway next to it
It will not automatically connect the depot to the road or railway and you need to remember to do it yourself.
My suggestion is to ask user at the end of placing the road or railway if it should automatically connect any depots that are next to and facing the road or railway.
Or it can be considered as a bug and I should raise it as an issue?
Although you could have a key modifier, perhaps - Ctrl-click when building a road either attempts or suppresses auto-join? But leave it alone for now, I'd say.
Or else - the current straight-road segment builders don't auto-join, but the four-way road builder does?
With trains it's a bit different since there's multiple ways to join depots to tracks.
