Yes, I have Autumn Olive, and it's a WONDERFUL wildlife plant. I planted it 32 years ago, and have never found it to spread into my gardens with good soil. It's a plant that grows well in poor soil, which is why people come along decades after cow fields have been unused and find it growing well. They don't grasp that it came in over decades, behaving as a pioneer plant along with the Eastern Red-cedar.

Have been seeing an adult male Red-naped Yellow-bellied Sapsucker this morning in our Autumn Olives and Photinias!
