Correct - filesystems in /etc/fstab are mounted.

No, not in rescue mode. Only in single user mode, and yes, those are

The basic idea is that you ONLY mount networked filesystems
through /etc/fstab if they are crucial for the initial booting.
E.g., /usr on NFS.
All other network filesystems should be mounted with automount,
so that they are mounted on demand instead of always.
So it's a local configuration issue.
