You can only decide if the network device is turned on at boot time or
not. When you enable a boottime activation, every profile can use it.

To allow or disallow a user to turn the device on or off, you have to
disable the boot time activation.

These are - as I see it - the options you have. So your observation
seems to correct:

Do you have "ONBOOT=yes"?

But if you can only guess, we all have just the crystal ball. Could you
post your config(s)?

Hence you are running FC3t1 (as I remember), yes. I e.g. can only
provide infos about FC2. I do not have a test machine. If nothing has
changed, then these infos might apply.
