Yes... there appears to be a cut/past error in the initscript.
Make the following change or wait for a few to pull a new package
out of rawhide:
<       [ "$NETWORKING" = "no" ] || exit 6
 >       [ "$NETWORKING" = "no" ] && exit 6

Sorry about that! I was just trying to conform the latest initscript
