Not that I am aware of in the mythfrontend UI - I don't think episode
tagging extends to this, but I'm likely wrong.

There's always the option of running a SQL query on the recorded table:

UPDATE `recorded` SET `autoexpire` = 1 WHERE <identify recordings here>

it just depends on your SQL comfort level and how easily you can
select the recordings you want to update. The usual warnings about
backing up before directly editing your DB apply here.
