I know what it's supposed to be pointing at, and created the link myself.

systemd-tmpfiles --create /usr/lib/tmpfiles.d/legacy.conf

Maybe that one should go in the postinstall script of filesystem then?
But my suspicion (see other post) is that the removal of /var/lock had been
delayed because it was still in use, so the post-script did not do anything,
and after the handle was free the link got deleted?

should take care of this setup - and this should actually run at every
boot; did you restart your TW machine after applying the update?

No, not yet; and I hope noone expects to reboot after such a minor package
change... (the filesystem package, not the whole update as such)
