Here is the senario.

3 Players, 1st turn,

Player A Picks a plant and Player B wins the auction. Next Player C picks a plant and wins the auction. Player A must buy a plant this phase, so does he get the same type of benefit as a last place player (ie buy a plant at face value?)

Wrong. If Player A is first in turn order, and chooses a plant, which Player B wins, then Player A is next to choose another plant.

If Player A started the auction and it went to Player B, Player A starts the next auction too. If that 2nd auction went to Player C, then Player A starts the third auction as well. Because he is the only one left, he gets it at face value.

I think the rule you're missing is, the person who starts the auction is the one lowest in turn order who has not won a plant this turn, not the lowest who hasn't started an auction or won a plant. So player A keeps starting auctions until he wins a plant.

Power Grid FAQ is your friend. It is good to read it before posting rule questions.
