A few comments:
- /var/log/journal is not created by default, so you'll get an error
message from setfacl in postinst for basically every user about that
directory not existing
- /var/log/journal is not removed on purge, so purging the
systemd-journal group in postinst/purge can lead to breakage should you
later re-install the package.
Either remove all files related to a that group before removing the
group or don't ever remove the group again. This is a controversial
topic. [1]
- The "getent group systemd-journal" checks around addgroup are not
necessary [2]

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