[arch-general] systemd user accounts are created in a inconsistent way

Most systemd user accounts are present in the /etc/passwd file provided
by the filesystem package. This is not the case for only two of them,
namely systemd-journal-upload and systemd-journal-remote, which are set
up by systemd-sysusers, executed when the systemd package is installed.

Is there a reason for that? Wouldn't it be better to include all
systemd users in /etc/passwd, or let systemd-sysusers handle account
