Normally there are no daemons running in the chroot, since well the init
scripts are never run for the chroot.

You can certainly add things to cron in the main system that runs chroot
things.  Something like this might work:

1 2 * * * dchroot -options command

With appropriate dchroot setup and options for running the command in
the chroot.

The crond doesn't know about the chroot, and the crond in the chroot
isn't running, so your system is behaving normally.
