I don't think that is true.
It certainly is not true if the network service is running,
and if you have an appropriate entry
But I'm pretty sure WiFi can work even if
neither the network nor the NetworkManager service is running.
The lack of any clear documentation on WiFi is a major failure
in Fedora, IMHO.
