You are asking somewhat unsupported or unspecified feature rathar than a bug.
The AUTHORIZER parameter, if not used as a MOUNT option, is for a DeleGate
as an origin FTP server not as a FTP proxy.

And I'm not sure how you can know which is the destination server when you
are trying to login, or how you will specify the destination server later.

Most of FTP client program ask the user the authentication before connecting
to the server, regardless wheter or not the information is used.
There is nothing to do by DeleGate to suppress it.

 |This is what I was trying to accomplish with the line: 
 |    AUTHORIZER="*.*.*"
 |But I do not see a way to initiate the connection to the FTP 
 |Proxy without being prompt for a user and password.

Which FTP client program are you using?

Your usage might be realized extending FTP proxy so that is apply
authentication information as:
USER user@server + PASS pass >>> AUTHORIZER="-list{user:pass}:*:server"
Or by using DeleGate as a origin FTP server or a reverse FTP proxy.
Another solution is using NAT by iptables on Linux and use DeleGate
on it as a transparent FTP proxy.
