I think you really want "noauto" instead of "auto" here, so the share is
only mounted on demand.

That said, it looks like your network setup does not properly hook up
the network-online.target, so the nfs mounts are attempted before the
network is actually up.

Could you share details about your network configuration like
/etc/network/interface etc.

It is odd though indeed, that systemd marks your nfs share as mounted
when it actually isn't. It seems I can reproduce that issue with v231 as
well. I've created a test share on a server, stopped the network and
then tried to mount the nfs share via
systemctl start mnt-nfs.mount. The result is the same:

‚óŹ mnt-nfs.mount - /mnt/nfs
   Loaded: loaded (/etc/fstab; generated; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (mounted) (Result: timeout) since So 2016-08-28

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
