As a follow-up, for anyone curious, the real problem is in the
/usr/lib/NetworkManager/conf.d/10-globally-managed-devices.conf file
Touching the /etc copy just effectively nullifies it.

The idea behind the default configuration is the belief that by default,
NetworkManager is the preferred interface to manage Wifi Connections,
but leave wired lan alone to the classic config.

If you jump through the netplan hoops, it will change that for you if
you specify Network Manager as your network configuration of choice.

But I would have to go on an whole different rant about netplan :)
