Many of the ones you quoted indeed don't make sense with systemd and are
either explicitly masked by a symlink to /dev/null, or have a
corresponding native systemd service that overrides them - notably,
everything in systemd, sysvinit, util-linux and procps - but you might
have missed the "next page" link at the bottom? There are about 4 pages
of results at the moment.

That search is among source packages, not binaries, so it'll match
anything that ships a rcS script, whether we would actually execute that
script under systemd or not. (The ones in the systemd source package are
for udev on a non-systemd init system, FWIW.)

At some point a mass-bug-filing on packages that ship an rcS script
without a corresponding systemd service would make sense, yes. Hopefully
many of them could be dealt with by masking the sysvinit script and
shipping a tmpfiles.d fragment.
