I don't know enough about nautilus or thunar to give you a good answer
on that.  I guess they put that feature into the FM on the assumption
that the user will not use any other file manager or mounting manager,
and because those FMs run all the time, even when you don't see them.
But this is a job for a separate, FM-independent program that runs in
the background.

I found a list of such programs here:

Well, I use it for precisely that use case.  It's just a matter of
pressing "gm", navigating to the mount point and pressing the key
binding for ":shell mount %f".  But it's up to you, of course :)
