Each time I do that, network-manager becomes unable to automatically
use the old registered connection, as it is parametered for a
specific device: is there a way to disable that?


don't set the parameters in the connection profile that restrict the
profile to a particular device.

For example, do not set (as applicable):

 - connection.interface-name
 - ethernet.mac-address
 - wifi.mac-address
 - match.interface-names
 - gsm.device-id

And see `man nm-settings`.

$ nmcli connection modify "$PROFILE" ethernet.mac-address ''
