[PVE-User] Upgrade PVE 5 -> 6: Switch to predictable network names?

I'm currently migrating my test cluster from PVE 5 to 6. As this also
means migrating from Debian 9 -> 10, I wonder if I have to switch to
predictable network names?

In the Debian 10 migration docs, this seems to be needed (e.g. eth0 ->
ensxxx), e.g. like the following:

rgrep -w eth0 /etc
udevadm test-builtin net_id /sys/class/net/eth0 2>/dev/null
-> replace eth-names with new predictable name
rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules
update-initramfs -u
-> reboot

So, should I do this? Or does proxmox handle this in some other way?
