Hmm, are you saying that changing the sysctl value too late will have no
effect on the sockets that already exist at that time?

You could do this on your system:

# mkdir /etc/systemd/system/syslog.socket.d/
# echo "[Unit]
After=systemd-sysctl.service" > /etc/systemd/system/syslog.socket.d/after-sysctl.conf

Then, make the sysctl setting, and things should work?
