Smells like a belated result of us dropping DynamicUser=1 from

Right now, systemd will automatically migrate the state directory for
services that have DynamicUser=0 to a newer version that has
DynamicUser=1, but not back. We should probably add that too.

Anyway, it was systemd v240 where we dropped the DynamicUser=1 thing
already, hence not precisely a v242 regression...
