I don't think the above is in the spirit of systemd. Ideally atd would parse /etc/sysconfig/atd itself¹ and set it's defaults accordingly. Using shell for this kind of things is one of the reasons why init scrips became such beasts.
The main issue here is the usage of this wonderful invention called sysconfig, which is really a hack for software whose authors were too lazy to include a basic configuration file. ;)
Now it has become entangled into the complete system and is very hard to get rid of :-|
 maybe we should have a common C library for that task
libHX already knows how to parse sysconfig files AFAIK.
