The "autostate" command is only available in some Cisco routers (running 12.4T atleast), not in Catalyst Switches (Where I personally think it's hardly required).
The SVI remains Up/Up when you have more switches in your VTP domain because the trunk ports between those switches allows all VLANs by default (including VLAN 2). That's why VLAN 2 keeps up in that environment.
Test: If you remove the VLAN 2 from the trunk ports between the switches with the "switch trunk vlan allowed remove vlan 2", the VLAN 2 will go down although you have multiple switches in the VTP enviroment.
Conclusion: It's not possible to keep an SVI Up/Up in a switch without associate it with a port (access or trunk).
