Though, normally you don't need to perform any special configuration for
the IP address as long as the networking configuration is correct.

The VM just needs to be configured to obtain an IP address via DHCP.
Later on it should be persistent in dnsmasq.

An IP address could be obtained either from the dnsmasq leases file or
from arp cache for example.

Yes, it's true, it starts its agent which does the job.

PS Maybe there are other ways to push Jobs to Jenkins nodes, but I
didn't look close into that.
