I think the best way to address this is to have packages ship unit override

Wouldn't the proper place for overrides installed by a distributions

These files are meant to be modifiable by the sysadmin, so they don't
belong in /usr.

While then can not be modified, settings made in /usr/lib/systemd/system can be overridden by the sysadmin by placing a file in /etc/systemd/system.

I am not aware of a reason why a package manger should install systemd configuration files under /etc.
