No, it isn't running.  I checked and it is installed in /usr/sbin/. 
There is no documentation for that executable, so I presume that the 
user isn't supposed to run it.

So, if it needs it, the daemon would run it?

Further investigation: nm-tool finds my eth0 NIC card but reports an error:

** (process:1585): WARNING **: error: failed to read connections from 
     The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManagerUserSettings was not 
provided by any .service files

** (process:1585): WARNING **: error: failed to read connections from 
     Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1

this appears to indicate that I am missing a *.service file
