Actually looking at it again, fd is the right partition type for raid
autodetect. My bad.
I think you might need to have an entry in your /etc/fstab in order for
the kernel to load the module on startup. Otherwise the raid driver will
not get started until you run raidstart (or mdadm --assemble which appears
to do the same thing).
