But you could also call fermionic fields “anticlassical” rather than quantum, given that bosonic fields (absent quantum dynamics) are classical.

Well, you could call the fermionic part of a superstring inherently quantum, in the sense that fermionic fields are inherently quantum.

Also , fermionic densities would also have a bearing on this discussion.

In spite of having painstakingly developed the standard model of real fermionic and bosonic matter, they were ready to accept the existence of a third kind of matter i.e. dark matter, in order to account for the unusual behavior of gravity, while all the time having known that they could not unite gravity into the standard particle model.
What’s the (Dark) Matter? John 2008

The inflaton, or Higgslike particle that induced inflation, expanded rapidly across the cosmological horizon to determine the curvature of the universe and the nature of gauge fields and their fermionic sources on a spatial surface not causally connected to the same initial conditions.
A Dark, Misleading Force Sean 2007

The Virasoro algebra acts on a fermionic Fock space and preserves certain subspaces generated by singular vectors; this means that the factor modules are well defined.

These bosonic fields are needed to cancel the conformal anomaly, however one can trade bosonic degrees of freedom for fermionic degress of freedom (two fermions for each boson) and reduce the number of required dimensions.
