there is no such API.

I guess you can delete the file, or modify it with "sed". That gets
complicated, because NetworkManager only loads the file ones and writes
it anew at unpredictable times. To get it right, you'd have to stop NM,
modify the file, start NM.

Btw, `sudo NetworkManager --print-config` prints the content of the no-
auto-default.state flag. Note that as NetworkManager loads the file
only once and remembers it, the running NetworkManager may not have
cached what --print-config shows.

OK, thanks. I overlooked this option.

Why do you want that?

Mostly to reset NetworkManager state to clean default. Usually it is
frowned upon direct editing of internal state files and this file is
certainly internal state.

If you say that editing it is OK it is fine for me.
