I notice /var/log/journal/{string}/ has nearly 1GB of logs in it,
going back as far as installation time.

Do you have logrotate installed? (it doesn't look like it).

From a 13.2 system:

# systemctl status logrotate.service
logrotate.service - Rotate log files
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/logrotate.service;
static) Active: inactive (dead)
Docs: man:logrotate(8)

Yes it appears to be installed.

logrotate --version
logrotate 3.8.7

My mistake, I thought logrotate was already a systemd service, but just
still being called with cron.
