Will my staking emissions rewards be automatically staked?

Yes.

At the end of every epoch, your emissions rewards for that epoch are automatically added to your staked XRD total (to the same validator that produced those emissions rewards for that stake).

Your rewards, therefore, compound approximately every 30 - 90 minutes (the length of an epoch), depending on how quickly “rounds” are produced by the network.

If you prefer to use your new XRD emissions for something other than staking to the same node, you simply need to  unstake the quantity you want to use.
