Each network connection (aka interface) has to be configured.
Both of these services do that.
At most one service can configure one interface. Services are definitely mutually exclusive per interface.

Is it possible that some interfaces are managed with one service and the rest with other service?
That was possible in CentOS Linux 7. Not sure about 8.

However, there has to be more than one interface to configure in the machine and a very good reason why they all cannot be managed with one service.
