systemd itself should have no problems with using symlinks, fwiw.

My guess is, that your $HOME/location/of/app/etc/systemd/system/
is not available when systemd is started during boot, so those files are
inaccessible. This obviously can't work.
You either need to move those files to a location which resides on your
/ partition or pre-mount /home in your initramfs before systemd is started.
