Assuming the name was not also defined elsewhere, I'm at a loss to know
why the release notes for Buster state 

 ...you should be aware that udev in buster no
 longer supports the mechanism of defining their names via
 /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. To avoid the danger of your
 machine losing networking after the upgrade to buster, it is recommended
 that you migrate in advance to the new naming scheme...

Well, I'm enp6s0 anyway now and somehow feel better about it.
