Please take a look at the Directories section of the systemd manual page[1]
and the systemd.unit manual page[2] for Ubuntu 16.04LTS.

 [1]: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man1/systemd.1.html#contenttoc5
 [2]: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man5/systemd.unit.5.html

Based on my understanding of the documentation there, I would say that
Ubuntu's(?) saned manual page[3] (which is not modified from the one
that the SANE project ships in this respect) refers to the correct
directory locations.  If that in some way does not work, it's first and
foremost an issue with the Ubuntu tutorial[4] and Ubuntu's systemd
and/or SANE packages.

You may also want to take a look of the files provided by Ubuntu's
sane-utils package[5] and note that these files should be installed for
you by the package, completely obviating the need for you to configure
