Not really — Ethernet connects automatically, and Wireless will do so
as well, if your credentials are saved across reboot. These are
NetworkManager's defaults.

Disclaimer: the statement above should not be construed as a
suggestion for a 50-emails-long serious discussion on tails-dev ML
wrt. proper NetworkManager default settings. In case Tails developers
are nevertheless compelled to discuss NetworkManager, I instead
suggest the exciting topic of: “Why launching user applications like
Iceweasel and Vidalia from NetworkManager events dispatcher via su is
wrong, and how can we do it right.”

By the way, in Debian one can just blacklist the relevant modules via
boot parameters. E.g., "virtio_net.blacklist=yes".
