I would go with "Autodetect from gradle-wrapper.properties" mainly because it is shorter. Longer texts make the ui look more cluttered.

Well, to be accurate STS is not using or picking the version and in fact until some tooling API changes a while back could not even know what version is being used.
I would also like to see a hint about the version used, back when I looked at printing such a line of info myself this wasn't yet possible, but I believe it is possible now so maybe I'll revisit that again:
