Drivers Position during Autonomous

Is a driver required to remain in the Driver’s Station the entire autonomous match? During autonomous we utilize a driver on each side of the field who help with resetting the robot in the starting position. At a recent tournament the announcer would tell a driver to return to the Driver’s Station, and that one driver must remain there. I don’t remember seeing that in the game manual.

So a Driver may leave the Driver Station to retrieve the Robot, but must return immediately after this interaction ends.
