The NFS volumes should always be mounted during normal operation (there
are system services using data on NFS) so they satisfy both the
"essential" and "static" criteria. Automount would be just unneccessary

Also there were a couple of situations when I'd preferred if single-user
mode did not try to mount /home or /var even if they were just regular
local file systems.
