Since NM's active and therefore most probably controlling the
interfaces, the only interface defined in "/etc/network/interfaces"
will be "lo" and ifupdown won't work.

If you've defined or uncommented an interface in
"/etc/network/interfaces" and you have "managed=false" in the ifupdown
section of "/etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf", ifupdown'll
work. I'm not sure what'll happen if you use ifupdown when you have
"managed=true" in this case.
