Strange that you'd see it in a 2.7.4 installation, it was added later.

The NDE is a helper script (can run standalone or wrapped into single-shot
or continuous daemon services - depends on use-case like one UPS
workstation or DCIM server watching a large dynamic population) to
configure systemd (or Solarish SMF) service instances for each nut-driver.
The script ensures drivers start after appropriate OS services (networking
required for some and irrelevant for others, etc.)
