You're making several mistakes. See the discussion below:

> location = /auth {
> add_header X-Boo "Hello World";

Mistake #1: The add_header directive from the standard ngx_headers
module has no effect on subrequests while your location /auth here is
accessed by a subrequest issued via the auth_request directive.

Mistake #2: The $upstream_http_XXX variables are only meaningful when
the *current* location is configured by one of those Nginx upstream
modules like ngx_proxy, ngx_fastcgi, ngx_uwsgi, and etc. Here your
current location, location /test, is not configured by any Nginx
upstream modules (neither ngx_auth_request nor ngx_lua are upstream
modules).

Mistake #3: The $upstream_http_XXX variables are only in effect for
the current request. It won't inherit values from any other requests
including subrequests.

BTW, I'm not sure what business requirements you're trying to achieve
here but I think you can just use access_by_lua with
ngx.location.capture here in place of auth_request and you can inspect
the subrequest's response headers easily in Lua.
