That doesn't sound right. No package (besides systemd) should ship
anything in /etc/systemd.
Packages which do ship service files, directories or symlinks in
/etc/systemd are to be considered buggy imo. They should be relying on
i-s-h to manage those symlinks and create the corresponding .wants
directories on demand.

We currently do have a few remaining packages which ship files in
/etc/systemd. Those should be fixed.

We could ship /etc/systemd/system in i-s-h, but would that help?

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
