This isn't automatic but it's fast, accurate and it works:

Highlight the footage in the timeline. Hit the letter o key to go to the layer's out point. The timeline cursor goes past the end of the comp. Note the time displayed in the upper left of the comp.

Now open the comp settings. Enter the noted time plus one frame, or copy-paste the noted time and add one frame.

Your comp is now as long as the footage. This only works if haven't trimmed the footage's out point in the comp.
