Someone mentioned, in another post, that the 752 might lose CatIII autoland because the plane was floating too much on short final.

The wake turbulence separation is based on aircraft weight rather than wing design. Since the 757 is close to the heavy weight category they gave it a separate category. So the application of winglets would have no affect on the wake turbulence separation, even if it did change the characteristics of the vortex off the wing.
