Yes, this is a bug in the the distro packaging. Please file a bug
against your distro, so that they add After=network-pre.target.

My educated guess is that, it's not trvial to get this right: we
document what network-pre.target is for in systemd.special(7) man
page, but I figure not everyone looks there. And i guess one most know
a certain level of systemd to understand what this actually means for
a specific implementation.
