I've looked at more "advice" sights than I've had hot dinners. My
current summary of the situation is as follows.
File /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0 is set up for static IP,
but is never activated.
However, Fedora always starts Wired-connection-1 which, I assume, uses
DHCP by default. There is no Wired-connection-1 in the scripts
directory, but the interface is still named eth0 by ifconfig.
nm-connection-editor shows Wired-connection-1 and eth0 as available
interfaces, but eth0 is shown as not activated while Wired-connection-1
shows activation which agrees with my login time, etc.
So, put simply, my OS is not using the appropriate script, but takes its
own course of action. I can't find where this is defined.
