Any service that used to start in run levels 2-5 was not started before
filesystems were mounted.  systemd hasn't changed that behaviour,
except that it actually checks that filesystem mounting succeeded.

Services that start in run level S under sysvinit certainly can start
before all filesystems are mounted.  That's, er, how filesystems other
than root get mounted.
