Hearing this, the first thought that came to my mind is: timeouts.

Maybe systemd is trying to mount the FS's in parallel or maybe you get
contention on IO buffers and stuff takes too long for systemd's taste
and it switches into the "sky is falling" mode? (As can be seen from the
wording I have no solid knowledge of the real workings of that system).
