Ideally - yes... but where?

Also I don't understand why these have to be virtual interfaces.
Wouldn't it be possible to attach the dhcp client to the normal
interface, just as it is done for ethernet or wifi interfaces?

That would simplify other things as I have been trying to mention in my
mail titled: "QMI/NCM/MBIM interfaces netifd ifup event too early"
