Autosteer penalty box for going too fast?

So, was driving on a 2 hr hiway trip using AP. I went to pass a cluster of cars, nice open road (I think I was on AP, but not 100% sure). All of a sudden I get the red steering wheel and angry beep and it said something like "autosteer not available for the rest of the trip due to exceeding autosteer speed limit". I probably had it up to around 90-92 on a 70mph road. I don't have any type of speed limit set in my controls. Is there a max speed number where you get booted from autosteer? It still let me do cruise control. I had to stop and put it in P to use autosteer again.

90mph. It is that speed for all cruise control systems.

The top limit of setting FSD is 90 mph. The error message and penalty hits at 95 mph.
A rather silly action -- to cancel autosteer for rest of trip -- as this is precisely the type of compromised driver that needs autosteer (once speed goes below 90).

So if you are on FSD and need to temporarily go 90+, then click right stalk up to cancel autosteer prior to your acceleration burst, then double-click back down when done.
