Not sure I understood the question :)

The idea when using the MM+NM combo is that ideally you can completely
ignore using mmcli commands. It is NM the one that detects that a
modem is exposed by MM, and it is NM the one that triggers the
connection of the modem; and once it is connected, it is NM the one
that takes the IP settings from the exposed bearer object and applies
those settings to the network interface.

Only creating a "gsm" setting in NM and attempting to connect it
should be enough to get the whole setup up and running.

Are you building NetworkManager with the --with-modem-manager-1
explicit configure option? Can you confirm whether that's the case?
Actually, could you post the output of the configure report when NM is
