Well, for networkd, there's the systemd-networkd-wait-online tool that allows you to wait until a specific interface is up. Maybe NM supports something similar? Please ask NM folks for help. Also, dnsmasq should probably use IP_FREEBIND or so (at least optionally) so that it can work without requiring the interface to be up. Either way, this is something to contact the NM and dnsmasq people about.
