grep -r net-device-added upstart-0.6.5
upstart-0.6.5/NEWS:        start on net-device-added INTERFACE!=eth*
upstart-0.6.5/init/man/init.5:start on net-device-added INTERFACE!=lo

They show up on the manual as an example, they are not triggered from the
upstart source, random guesses don't really help. Even if they were
available from the source Patrick point is valid, you are not expected to
check source code to identify how the startup system works, if there are
events that can be emitted without being defined on an upstart .conf there
should be an easy way to identify it's purpose and it's emitter.

The question was how to disable, not how to remove.
