Yes, and that's where he says not to use that "state saving" way, an
instead use a more traditional rc file approach that i feel is cleaner
too. there he tosses about several alternatives, from which I guessed
/etc/network/if-pre-up.d/... as according to ls -lt it indeed gets
read at boot.

indeed. We will see at next boot. Maybe I will lock myself out of
the keyboard, to y'all's relief.
