I know nothing about the assembly of cars, except what I have seen in videos.

I have never seen a video where seats and dashboard go in without human help.

Does any other car maker do this? If so, who? Thanks.
Mercedes does it. There are some YouTube videos about it. Tesla used to install Model S seats with robots back in the day but they had since stopped.

Having no human at inserting seats is only partly helpful in terms of human labor and time saved.
Seats are usually inserted with human operated/supervised machinery. There are 4 bolts per seat and one connector.
It's possible to program machines to bolt down the seats. Tesla theoretically could do that with M3.
I've not seen a connectors manipulated by machines so far. I don't expect Tesla doing that with M3. Model Y, maybe.
Especially with the new harness vision Mr. Musk had.
