I don't understand why any application should do this.
Put your files into your assumed auto-start folder. I would use links
instead of the real files.
Open that folder, hit Ctrl+A and Enter to open all the files with the
default application.
That was possible in OS/2, but I haven't seen it anywhere else.  With
OS/2, you could create a "Work Area" folder and whenever that folder was
opened, whatever was in it would also open.

Forgot to mention, closing the folder also closed the open documents. 
So, you could create a work area folder for a project, place all the
files for that project in the folder and then open or close them all at
once.   You could also create shadows for those documents in the work
area folder, but leave the originals elsewhere.  A shadow is another
instance of the exact same file, so changes in a shadow automagically
appear in the original.

With any popular Linux desktop and (Windows too) Ctrl+A selects all file
icons in a folder window.
And the Enter key does the same as the double-click. It triggers the
standard action which should be "open" for all document files.
I would not be surprised if something similar works with OSX as well.
