Thanks for you help, finally I've got it working.

Just for clarification, I'm using Yocto rocko. I've checked and support for
parametrized systemd services is available in systemd.bbclass.
Also I've tried to make a dummy profile file and populate it on rootfs
instead of symlink. It also didn't work.

Finally I've change my recipe from standalone to append. My
openvpn_%.bbappend looks like:

inherit systemd
SYSTEMD_SERVICE_${PN} = "openvpn@clientprofile.service"

do_install_append() {
install -d ${D}${sysconfdir}/openvpn/
ln -sf /data/etc/openvpn/clientprofile.conf

And it works. I suppose my standalone recipe has been missing something
that prevents systemd from finding/enabling the service.
Hope it helps someone.
