yes, and all these setups are more than satisfied with network.service
and do not need more complexity with a running daemon like NM

they are also not affected from the interface-renamings and race-conditions
which are the reson for biosdevname and the new systemd-replacement because
typically in a VM you have even with multiple interfaces the same NIC type
and driver
