The discussion of Automatic Accidentals in the Chapter 1 of the Notation Manual 
This rule is similar to modern, but the ‘extra’ accidentals (the ones not 
by default) are typeset as cautionary accidentals. They are by default printed
with parentheses, but they can also be printed in reduced size by defining the
cautionary-style property of AccidentalSuggestion.
This looks to be an oversight. The cautionary-style property was deprecated
in Release 2.11.5 but it seems the manual was not updated.  Thanks for pointing
this out.

The correct override is

\version "2.19.20"

   \relative c'' {
       \accidentalStyle neo-modern-cautionary
       \override AccidentalCautionary #'font-size = #-2
cis16 cis d cis cis cis d d d d d d cis c c c

Also, the neo-modern-cautionary discussion does not mention the possibility
of reduced size accidentals; wouldn’t the info under modern-cautionary also 
apply to neo-modern-cautionary.
Yes, the example above shows this.
