I meant that, for example, A is enabled and contains Requires=B and
this is the only dependency that causes B to run and then B alters or
even disables A and calls systemctl daemon-reload.

What I would like to know is what is the exact behavior of systemctl
daemon-reload. I am writing a service that creates/modifies other
units by placing files under /run and I would like to know what are
the limitations. In my case I cannot use a systemd.generator as the
service depends on a mounted directory.
