Oh wow!  I didn't actually know that was a thing!  I did just find this in the

   The ‘modify-services’ form provides a handy way to change the
parameters of some of the services of a list such as ‘%base-services’
(*note ‘%base-services’: Base Services.).  It evaluates to a list of
services.  Of course, you could always use standard list combinators
such as ‘map’ and ‘fold’ to do that (*note List Library:
(guile)SRFI-1.); ‘modify-services’ simply provides a more concise form
for this common pattern.

So it looks like you can use 'map' and 'fold' on %desktop-services to 
manually remove that nm-applet...I'm not entirely certain how to do it

Here's how you can play with that:

$ guile
guile command line $  ,use(gnu services desktop)
guile command line $ %desktop-services  ;; this will list the default 
guile command line $ (map ;; or fold
                       ;; some code
