Really? That sounds rather odd, since nothing normally run on a server
should have a dependency on it. (I'd image that some of the graphical
network management tools typically installed on desktop systems might,
though.) Do you have more details on when you've seen this happen?

Actually, that's necessary only if you actually run NetworkManager.
The tests that look at it are of the form

    if is_nm_running ...
        if ! is_false $NM_CONTROLLED; then

(This, I suppose, is the advantage of nasty shell scripts for setting
up stuff; when the documentation isn't reliable, as with the
`/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts` stuff, at least you can read through
the scripts and figure out what they do.)
