You are wrong ;)

NM does use so called "system settings" which are pretty much the
"legacy" ifup scripts.
It has its own keyfile based backend for this but currently we use the
old format trough the redhat/fedora plugin.
So when you create a connection by system-config-network nm would use
it unless you remove the "nm controlled" bit.
