Sir, systemd has zero control over the how the networking tools work.

Mmm.

The messages I got that both nm and ifup were starting came from systemd >:-)

Indeed.
And xinetd of old had zero control over how cups, rsync, vnc, ftp, ssh and others work ...

But they are all started by the xinet daemon. The daemon was a dispatcher.

Similarly systemd serves as a dispatcher and starts up named and many others. That's all it can do - how they work "internally" has nothing to do with systemd.

If you have a device whose start up requires you to shove coal into the furnace, light it and "press enter" when the steam pressure reaches 90psi then systemd has no control over the shovel or the over-pressure escape safety valve either.

Of course some things end up being done by rules in udev.
Systemd start up the daemon for all that ... something I'm just begining to learn about

Its a shame that USG went in a different direction from Plan9 so we can't have network devices and names under /dev ....

Reading from /dev/ipv4/www.amazon.com/80 makes so much sense ... :-)

Who knows? maybe that will be possible in the near future :-/
