Hi Justin,
Make sure that cloud-init is installed and enabled on the VM (before
creating a template from it).
The template should be sealed.

Then you can create a VM from it.
There are two options:
1. Edit the VM with cloud-init configuration.
2. Run-Once with cloud-init configuration.

Your changes should persist on the VM. If you are talking specifically
about the static network being reverted back (to DHCP), we had a bug on it.
Please make sure your cloud-init version is up to date to be at least
18.5-8 as seen in the bug:

Regards,
Liran.
