Nope. There's nothing magic that pulls syslog.target in.

Hmm, as mentioned the current thinking there is to hook as little into
the targets as necessary to fulfill what they are needed for. And that
is for syslog.target just syslog.socket, not the full rsyslog.service which
can start much later.
But I am a bit torn about this. It might be worth changing this. Dunno.
