/etc/init.d/networking (or networking.service) is responsible for
handling "auto" interfaces in Debian, ifup@.service, triggered via udev,
is responsible for handling allow-hotplug interfaces.

If you don't have any ifup@.service instances running, and you do use
ifupdown, I guess your interfaces are all marked auto in
