you need to pass that AUTH_CAPTURE or AUTH_ONLY info to the [charge] tag.
so, basically, you could do this to achieve AUTH_ONLY:

1. in etc/log_transaction change the charge tag to something like this:
[charge route="[var MV_PAYMENT_MODE]" transaction="[value 

2. in your checkout page for instance you could set the value:
<input type="hidden" name="mv_payment_transaction" value="AUTH_ONLY" />
