[arch-general] systemd-networkd and netctl with multiple interfaces

I installed Arch on my new Thinkpad T450s over the weekend.
Everything works well, but I have a question:

I use systemd-networkd to manage my network interfaces and netctl for
the connections. I set everything up according to (this)[0] and
(this)[1] to get automatic activation of wifi via netctl-auto and

My question is as follows: I use i3wm, and i3status shows *both*
ethernet and wifi as connected if I plug in the cable while having a
wifi connection. What does this mean exactly, and how is my traffic routed?

Thanks in advance for clearing that up.
