I've read macrium reflect has added support for hardware self-encrypting drives (SED) but my question is: does this support happens automatically or must there be done some manual actions to make the system working for imaging and for restoring?

No expert on this by any stretch of the imagination but my understanding is that SED is very transparent so it would seem to me that Reflect or any other program accessing the disk would not need to worry about it being present. The data is automatically encrypted when the disk writes it and automatically presents it as plain when read.
