Public bug reported:

Every other systemd-infected distribution leaves the rc-local.service
unit enabled; this is probably because provisioning systems need to use
it to launch first-boot tasks.

Ubuntu has been blindly following suit in every other respect and should
do the same here also.  It's a null op unless the file exists and is
executable, so enabling it gives all the benefits for extremely
negligible cost.

Example reproducable bug:
* preseed a new host and an rc.local expected to run on boot
* boot and realise rc.local didn't run
* realise you can't enable it in the preseed as systemctl is not affecting the 
target system
* curse Lennart (again) and run Devuan instead where things just work as they 

** Affects: systemd (Ubuntu)
     Importance: Undecided
