I looked a little, and hald seams to be the one mounting them, or maybe 
udev. I read that one of those systems is absolete, but can not confirm, 
and I am out of free time to look for the answer at the time.

Here is something from Kubuntu, maybe it points you in the right direction:

"On my Kubuntu 10.04, the configuration file for halevt is located at 
/etc/halevt/halevt.xml. By Kubuntu default, halevt will automount all 
removable media with the option sync. It's much better to mount them 
read-only to avoid wearing on the media. To do so, modify the following 
lines in halevt.xml"
