For those who want to stick to NetworkManager, II found out that the

$ systemctl enable iwd.service
$ systemctl start iwd.service

from my initial post, should not be necessary and can cause conflict.
Because NetworkManager is supposed to handle starting iwd, after iwd is
added to the NetworkManager config file.

That networkmanager does not handle iwd correctly, is a known issue with
NetworkManager. We can only wait for it to get updated with future
Fedora releases I guess.

I am now also curious about non-networkmanager alternatives and their
usability though.

interesting. I tried that in my debian-minimal-net but I cannot start
iwd with systemctl. Errors similar to here

but the proposed "solution" does not work. The thread suggests

  sudo cp /usr/lib/systemd/system/iwd.service /etc/systemd/system/

but that file does simply not exist, so I cannot copy it. So I stopped
that experiment for the moment. Maybe @unman has a suggestion for a
well-working debian-based 'minimal' solution without  networkmanager
and/or   wpa_applicant ?  Best,
