Nope, you don't have to "nobble" the init script.
 Use "update-rc.d network-manager disable".
That's the proper interface to disable sysv services from starting.
Those /etc/defaults ENABLE switches are a hack

Why are people not a aware of that update-rc.d interface? Is this a
general documentation problem?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
