Technical nit: No, unit files aren't.  AIUI a package would ship its
unit file in /lib/systemd/system (i.e. RedHat-style).  If you need to
override it, you're of course free to copy it to /etc/systemd/system and
make the necessary adjustments.  You will not, however, get a conffile
update prompt when the system file changes (e.g. to update your own
local copy to incorporate the fix).
