Fwiw, I'm aware of

Your issue, at least how you described it, sounds different though.
If you explicitly start timesyncd, having chronyd stopped is totally

If you do have an alternative NTP client installed, the Conflicts should
be sufficient. To be sure timesyncd is not started during boot, you can
simply disable it though.

universe are pointed away from Earth?
