Microsoft is investigating ten Windows 10 2004 known issues
Right after releasing the Windows 10 May 2020 Update to home
customers, Microsoft has already added ten know issues under
investigation to the Windows 10 2004 release health dashboard.
Microsoft has added the known issues to the health dashboard right
after starting the new release's rollout process, together with nine
compatibility holds designed to prevent users of impacted devices from
being offered the latest Windows 10 release.
"We recommend that you do not attempt to manually update using the
Update now button or the Media Creation Tool until this issue has been
resolved," Microsoft added.
ices from connecting to more than one Bluetooth device, cause refresh
rate issues for devices with Intel GPUs, and trigger errors when
plugging or unplugging a Thunderbolt dock.
Others cause issues when older drivers for Nvidia display adapters
(GPU) are installed and could lead to unexpected restarts for some
devices using Always On, Always Connected capable network adapters.
Microsoft and the vendors behind the drivers or firmware coming with
incompatibility issues are working on a resolution, with an update to
be provided in an upcoming release.
For some of the issues, Microsoft also provides mitigation measures or
workarounds, saying that "you will need to check with your device
manufacturer (OEM) to see if an updated driver is available and
install it."

Each entry regarding "always on" mentions, "Always On, Always Connected capable network adapters."  Your general presumption is correct, though I think there may even be some ethernet cards that can be put to sleep by Windows, too.  Not absolutely sure about that, though.

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
