Technically all of the Nations League games (or qualification games therefor) are friendlies. 

FIFA doesn't consider them friendlies.

I: importance of match

• I= 05 Friendly matches played outside of International Match Calendar windows
• I= 10 Friendly matches played during International Match Calendar windows
• I= 15 Group phase matches of Nations League competitions
• I= 25 Play-off and final matches of Nations League competitions
• I= 25 Qualification matches for Confederations final competitions and for FIFA World Cup final competitions
• I= 35 Confederation final competition matches up until the QF stage
• I= 40 Confederation final competition matches from the QF stage onwards; all FIFA Confederations Cup matches
• I= 50 FIFA World Cup final competition matches up until QF stage
• I= 60 FIFA World Cup final competition matches from QF stage onwards

Summary, you are given more ranking points for Nations League group phase games and even more ranking points for Nations League playoff matches than you do for friendlies. So, technically, they are not friendlies.
