NFS isn't started in single user mode.

Yes, all mounts from fstab, including NFS mounts, are done in
single user mode. But you should only put essential,static mounts in
/etc/fstab (say, /usr or so). For the rest you should use automount.

If you don't want NFS mounts in single user mode, don't put them
in /etc/fstab ...
