Yeah, I'd still like to know if they do show up via dispatcher scripts.
This is not SUSE specific; the dispatcher scripts work this way for
NetworkManager in general.  Typically the dispatcher script would write
the NTP servers out to the ntpd config file and then send a signal to
ntpd to indicate that its config had changed.  This would not
necessarily be part of netconfig.
