OK, a few things here. First of all, you don't actually need to have an
IP address on the host system to use a VLAN or interface as an external
provider network. The Neutron router will have an IP on the right
network, and within its namespace will be able to reach the 10.10.10.x

It looks to me like NetworkManager is running dhclient for eth0, even
though you have BOOTPROTO="static". This is causing an IP address to be
added to eth0, so you are able to ping 10.10.10.x from the host. When
you turn off NetworkManager, this unexpected behavior goes away, *but
you should still be able to use provider networks*.

Try creating a Neutron router with an IP on 10.10.10.x, and then you
should be able to ping that network from the router namespace.

If you want to be able to ping 10.10.10.x from the host, then you
should put either a static IP or DHCP on the bridge, not on eth0. This
should work whether you are running NetworkManager or network.service.
