As usual, don't enable what you don't use. Do you use/need any of them? Is there anything that doesn't appear to automatically start when you want/expect it to?

No, it's OK for things to be disabled, unless you're getting errors during startup or you have things that are not running on boot that should be running. Is your startup clean?

An example: I notice you have networkmanager installed but not using it because you're using systemd static network configuration, so that's OK for networkmanager to be disabled.

systemd should start what it thinks it needs to start. But this is based on what you want, or at least that's the theory (some people think otherwise, but... never mind that).
