thanks for your response.
I assigned this bug to systemd, cause I did not know any better and
thought the sysfs filesystem is managed by systemd, like /run.

Btw, /dev/pts/ptmx is also mislabeled:

root at debianSE:~# restorecon -vv -R -n /dev
Warning no default label for /dev/mqueue
Warning no default label for /dev/pts/0
Would relabel /dev/pts/ptmx from system_u:object_r:devpts_t:s0 to

Kindly Regards,
