well, in another thread, it was discussed why generated should never have
an install section and why enablement does not make sense for them...
so no it's not a bug.

Arguably, yes, generators do need to care about symlinks, though, maybe the
could call "systemctl add-wants --transient" to do the job,
but at that point, that's more pedantic than practical. If you write a
generator, your systemd-fu should be high enough to know and
understand systemd's symlink mechanisms...
