When you are autoguiding the target is always centered so no plate solve
is needed.
I think you misunderstood. I do the same thing with ACP. Each time the mount slews to the target, e.g., initially, after an autofocus, or after a meridian flip, ACP performs a plate-solve to center the target on the camera's sensor.

This happens before autoguiding is turned on, so has nothing to do with guiding.
