At stock settings using PBO my Ryzen 5 2600 hits from 3.75 to 3.9 GHz on 1 or 2 cores under load as needed.
That is completely normal for it to clock slightly less than the max if it does not need to.
You can manually OC it to 3.9 GHz (or even higher) and all cores will hit 3.9 Ghz under load.

Auto settings are fine, the CPU will run at stock settings that way.
If you want to overclock it, you will need to follow an overclocking guide and change settings accordingly.
