It's an outstanding ticket (among a few other related ones): https://github.com/QubesOS/qubes-issues/issues/1928 As compared to all the other stuff the Qubes devs have on their plates, I assume it's a relatively low priority, since Debian-8 is a bit of an "addon" as compared to Fedora-23, and its easy enough for someone to fix in the template themselves. The "listening" services are less of a concern, since the firewall wouldn't permit any incoming connections to be passed through to start with. It's the "phone home" style services, like time sync, Samba name lookups on microsoft servers, and such, that are more concerning, and privacy-busting. I was not pleased to see the Debian vm, by default, connecting to some microsoft servers for Samba name resolution, lol. Especially when I never use any SMB style naming, nor programs, to start with.
