As someone else had stated, it's not related to SystemD but
Fedora/RHEL has changed the way they handle some things.  NICs, for
instance, are no longer named after the device number (eth0, eth1,
eth2, etc.) but after the *driver* name.  Yes, it's a change but it
also makes sense.  IIRC this is how FreeBSD handles NIC names.
