Check "/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf"

If "managed=false" in the "ifupdown"  section, NM will not manage
interfaces defined in "/etc/network/interfaces".

I'm not sure of the current behavior because I don't use NM but,
AFAIK, when NM's installed "managed" is set to "false" and NM comments
out interfaces that are configured in "/etc/network/interfaces" other
than "lo".
