The point of NetworkManager is to make networking configuration and setup as painless and automatic as possible. If using DHCP, NetworkManager is intended to replace default routes, obtain IP addresses from a DHCP server and change nameservers whenever it sees fit. In effect, the goal of NetworkManager is to make networking Just Work.
Whilst it was originally targeted at desktops, it has more recently been chosen as the default network management software for some non-Debian server-oriented Linux distributions. If you have special needs, the upstream's developers would like to hear about them, but understand that NetworkManager is not intended to serve the needs of all users.
