Sweave needs <<>> blocks to follow immediately after new line. So you
are out of luck even if ESS/Auctex would indent the code. Knitr
overcomes this problem, but ess-noweb.el is designed for Sweave.
Polymode allows chunks not to start in the middle of the line but
indentation of fully indented chunks is not yet implemented.

This is the drawback of mode re-initialization. Each time you switch
chunks the corresponding mode is completely reinitialized. This and
other similar issues don't occur in polymode.
So I guess you will have to wait a couple of weeks till I properly
finish polymode. It is already pretty stable so you can give a dev
version a try.
