Not with upstream systemd, the sysv generator doesn't check if there's
already a unit of that name (as it produces them in generator.late/).
The Debian package has a patch for this [1]; it might make sense to
upstream this as I think it's generally a good idea -- there's no need
to synthesize units which we are never going to call, it's just a
waste of resources.
