In general OK, this may change things for existing CT - if I understand correctly:

-- man systemd.network (emphasis added)

also looking at 'man 5 interfaces' it seems that distros using Debian like
networking may need this too, if auto is set they have RA enabled by default,
but only on non-forwarding interfaces. So same status as with systemd.network
before your patch, I guess.

The side effects from your patch, i.e., explicitly disabling it where it
may not have been disabled before, may only be an issue if a CTs network
configuration is wrong, in the sense that something else then the wanted
behaviour was setup. So I'm OK with that.

Should we do this on Debian-like CTs too? The explicit disabling?
