Over the weekend I got more "data" on this from Fritz...

Seems with targets implemented by external SAN hardware, the host has a
single iSCSI initiator with multiple targets. The claim is libvirt
doesn't need the targets in manual mode. I'm still trying to process
that so patches 3-5 could need more adjustment. The adjustment being the
removal of the autologin code.  Since patch 4 would add the "--op
nonpersistent" to the listing command line, the adjustment made to the
/var/lib/iscsi doesn't happen.  Still trying to process that feedback. I
did find that even with this patch applied, if something runs the
"--mode discovery" without the "--op nonpersistent" (something other
than libvirt), then the mode in the /var/lib/iscsi goes *back to*
automatic.  So in a way, it doesn't matter what we set this to, it can
be overridden. So what's the point of setting it then <sigh>.  Was
really trying to follow the spirit of the original change...
