My understanding is that /media is used as a mount point for things
that are not found in /etc/fstab, and are detected by HAL. HAL
mounts them there so the the console user can access them. The user
normally can not create directories in /mnt.

This is different from automount, where the directories are already
there. Automount mounts the specified file system when someone tries
to access it.
