I have finally found a solution that works well for me - I simply did
"systemctl enable NetworkManager-wait-online" and rebooted - the dhcpd4 and
named services are now running correctly after the system boots - so the
dhcpd4 service does indeed get held until the network is properly up so I
now have a system working as it should and therefore this particular issue
is resolved.

systemd-analyze shows a boot time of 8.7 seconds so there is no significant
delay by enabling NetworkManager-wait-online service.
