This is standard RPM behavior - if file did not change, there is

I believe an rpm update does not backup scripts, only configuration
files. Ie, local customizations. And not all customization: changes in
scripts are lost.

On the other hand, quite often in updates I have to compare both the
old (saved by rpm command) and new files, and they were exactly the
same. The rpm command should have fully replaced the old config file
without the extra noise.

But this is nothing done by systemd, unless Linda failed to explain
the case better, instead of ranting ;-)
