Hi Subodh,

Yes,this is changing automatically as Account and Contact have a master-detail relationship so changing the onwer on the account record will automatically give the new owner the same ownership to all those contacts related to that account.Coming to your second question ,I dont think we still have the access to disable this but we can change the owner of contact later manually it seems.I have got this topic still trending in success community,you can check that too.
