Thunderbolt Adapter does not get DHCP address

Why does Thunderbolt Adapter (Thunderbolt Networking) always get 'Unidentified Network' (APIPA)?  Why not get an address from DHCP?

That's a good question -- for the manufacturer of your networking adapter. Have you checked that the adapter is configured to use DHCP? I agree that it should be the default, but some manufacturers may have other ideas.

Answering my own question:

 

For clarity, 'Thunderbolt Adapter', is a Networking Connection generated on Windows for a TB3 AIC.

If a DHCP server is run on the same host with the AIC card, then the Thunderbolt Adapter can get a DHCP address.
