Yes.  NetworkManager still has knowledge of the hidden network
connection request in memory, having been told about it by the GNOME

(Restarting NetworkManager at this point causes the connection to drop
and not be re-established.)

Yes, I agree.  After reboot, NetworkManager is restarted, and therefore
no longer knows about the hidden network connection request.

The ONBOOT setting doesn't appear to work either.

I've tested 10.1.3 and 11.2.0 os11 and adjusted
