It would be worth trying, although I'm not currently in a position to
easily put together a testbed machine (or VM) for this purpose.

Hmm. Apparently I didn't search for the right thing; I just used the
full explicit path, including /etc/, which found nothing.

I'm guessing this is a case where the systemd pattern of having config
files under /lib/ and symlinking them from under /etc/ is in use, and
that one of /etc/systemd, /etc/systemd/network/, and
/etc/systemd/network/99-default.link is a symlink.

/etc/systemd/network/ doesn't appear on my system, but 99-default.link
does exist under /lib, with the same contents as you gave from yours.
