That's a wrong assumption. NM doesn't wait until the user has started. 
It is a system service which starts at boot. nm-applet(GNOME) or 
Knetworkmanager (KDE) is just a frontend to the system service called 
NM. It is possible to write a console frontend  to do a similar task for 
the non-desktop case but NM atleast initially was designed to make 
wireless network access easier. It has grown additional functionality 
over time however.
