I managed to reproduce. Interestingly, this appears to occur only
during boot, but not if networkd is restarted after the boot. To
reproduce I created a bootable debian raw image with mkosi, and
configured as follows:

0. Install $EDITOR
1. Enable networkd (and add a config for ens* with dhcp)
2. Install iproute2
3. Add the service as described in the first post (make sure to add
DefaultDependencies=no to the unit).

After a reboot, I could see that TEST has no addresses.

Use the following to boot the image:
qemu-system-x86_64 -m 512 -vga virtio -bios /usr/share/ovmf/OVMF.fd \
--enable-kvm -drive file=image.raw,format=raw
