Lxc.network.flags=up but no status "down"?

I was wondering it there is no allowed / working value “down” for the lxc.network.flags?

Regarding to the man pages:

specify an action to do for the network.
up: activates the interface.

I also tried to set the config to “down”, rebooting an checking.
ip link show eth1 still tells me that the link has the state “up”

Unless we have a bug, all you should have to do is not set lxc.network.flags.

If it’s inherited from some other config file, just having this in your config should clear it:
