Is there there more info about the warning about the NetworkManager?

The installation guide states:
You must disable NetworkManager before you run the cPanel & WHM installation. The Network Manager service automates the network's settings and disrupts connections to the IP addresses that reside in the ipaliases module.
Installation Guide - System Requirements - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

What is the implication today (CentOS 7.4) of:
a) using NetworkManager with Cpanel?
b) disabling or activating NetworkManager with Cpanel installed?

A lot of things can disrupt connections to IP addresses. So I wonder what scenarios are meant.
I currently don't use CentOS 7 on productive servers. So my question might be silly. Feel free to point that out too.
