This is transparent to the user; the user doesn't know whether the
connection will be through PPP or a WWAN network interface. The
PPP-based fields are always there, but they won't apply if the
connection goes through a WWAN network interface. This is not ideal,
but right now there's no way for NM to know the type of interface that
will be used for the connection later on; only when it has been

That won't interfere no, as long as the network interface renaming
rules are run before MM's own udev rules.

ModemManager doesn't run any usb_modeswitch command itself.
usb_modeswitch is usually run way before the MM rules are applied.

Does the list of ports in the "mmcli -m [N]" output show any "cdc-wdm" port?

Ok, huawei-cdc-ncm is enabled.
But how about the cdc-wdm driver (CONFIG_USB_WDM)?
