When tracker has some categories with assignees defined, changing category should cause assignee change too.
This seems more predictable behaviour to me.

In this case administrator could completely hide support personnel from clients and manage responsible persons only by category switching.

Actually, the current behaviour is to set the assignee automatically on issue creation only, as requested in #382. This is also described in the guide.
