No, you get to keep NetworkManager.


Michal Sekletar:

"In RHEL-7 we shipped it in Optional channel, hence it was not officially
  supported. We decided to remove it for a couple for reasons,
   * networkd is not mature enough and is somewhat poorly maintained upstream
   * networkd is still missing management interfaces (DBUS interface)
   * RHEL's default network configuration tool is NetworkManager and we didn't want to send mixed signals to users
   * RHEL-8 was supposed to be as small as possible in terms of packages
   * we didn't see too much networkd usage (even experimental) in RHEL-7"
