The community doc you point to was never an official solution, as it breaks other functionality (like having /usr on NFS). At that point mounting network filesystems at boot while using NetworkManager to handle your network (rather than editing /etc/network/interfaces) is not really supported.

Please also see for a discussion on how to fix it.
