Yes, MSC puts the $12 ppd on your account, this is because the tips go to more than room steward, waiter and assistant waiter. It also goes to the Head Waiter, Maitre D' etc.

Also when you order something from the bars the tip is included in the price so no extra 15 or 18 % added.

You can have the auto tips removed but you do need to do this early in the cruise.

There were many on our cruise that had the auto tips removed as soon as they boarded. We left ours in place. But did not add any more.
