You've configured your network interface device(s) in
/etc/network/interface, that means they are managed by ifupdown.

If you want to manage your interface with
network-manager/plasma-widget-networkmanagement, you should remove those
interfaces from /etc/network/interfaces. See also
/usr/share/doc/network-manager/README.Debian
