Yes, but not quite. I do want the device to be mounted automatically

Now I understand. Yes, that is (afaict) a practice/situation systemd
does not currently cater to.

Yes systemd does cater to that

You can create a unit "fsck-home.service'
The Before: does the unmount. The Exec: does the fsck. The After: remounts.

Its a unit under the control of systems so it can take care of the unmount.

Buff :-(

Alternatively, if you're CLI, then:

systemctl stop home.mount
fsck /dev/HOME
systemctl start home.mount

Which is essentially the guts of the above described unit.

Well, that would work, but it is something new to remember. It is
modified behaviour to what existed for decades.
