I had problems with APFS and upgrade to high sierra, and ended up reverting and keeping the boot drive on HFS+.
Yes, you have to manually place it there. There is a new feature in clover bootloader options. In customize section in Drivers64efi you can select apfsautoloader. It automatically detects and uses it so you don’t have to worry about updates and compatibility with an old version of apfs. It also allows you to boot into High Sierra and Mojave from the same clover boot loader. If you add that to your Clover/Drivers64efi folder make sure to remove the apfsEFI file.I did this for the first time on a fresh Mojave install. There was no apfs.efi file in /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/ so I just copied the file there without replacing anything. I have an SSD using APFS. Is that normal that the file wouldn't be there the first time?
It seems as if we're into a point by point update of apfs.efi in High Sierra.
To find your current apfs.efi:
1. Boot into macOS High Sierra
2. Choose Finder > Go > Go To Folder
3. Navigate to /usr/standalone/i386/
4. Copy apfs.efi to /Volumes/EFI/EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/
