I doubt it. The GUI for managing the network is (most likely) Network
Manager. It doesn't use /etc/network/interfaces at all, and interfaces
that have been configured in that file aren't managed by Network
Manager unless you explicitly tell it to by editing it's config file.

Then again, I didn't think Network Manager did anything that would
cause systemd to wait for the interface to be connected on boot, but
I'm not terribly familiar with it, so I might well be wrong.

It might also not be this at all that is your problem, it was just the
first thing that came to mind when you mentioned that plugging in an
Ethernet cable helped.

Did the checkbox for connecting displays work?
