Actually, right now, it is what's wanted.

If you want control of networking within the user session,
NetworkManager is what you want.  This is the more expected use case
with those who run and install from the live images and thus it is the
default there.

If you want the network settings to be decided on a system-wide basis,
right now, you use the network service and not NetworkManager.  Work is
underway so that for F9, this group of users moves to using
NetworkManager as well
