So you've gone out of your way to run a daemon but prevent it from
working as configured, instead of just reconfiguring it to do what you

I have Network Manager and it is extremely simple to configure it to
keep fixed DNS Servers as well as have static addresses for ethernet

complain about network management tools interfering are people that
never tried or tried once *years* ago and never checked again.
