Yeah, I use mine too... a lot. And I change lenses frequently, too. So I think I can speak about this with some confidence. But I have always used Nikons and never a Canon DSLR, which, you keep intimating in your posts, are superior.
Yes, auto sensor cleaning vibrates dust off the sensor and deposits it into "sticky tape". That's how all manufacturers do it. I do know, from experience, that the first Nikon that I owned with this feature kept much cleaner with sensor cleaning foned on rather than left off. So now I just turn it on when I get new camera and forget about it. It will not remove sticky particles or liquids, but is quite effective at loose dust.
