That seems odd: the systemd --user instance is started via PAM for login
The PAM config for cron should contain:

@include common-session-noninteractive

which does *not* include pam_systemd.so

Please check, which PAM config is used and does pull in pam_systemd.so
in your case.

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
