That lets you prevent systemd from running fsck in the first place.

Unless I'm greatly misunderstanding what I've read so far, it does not
let you cancel a systemd-initiated boot-time fsck which is already in

Discussion found via Google seems to indicate that even Ctrl-Alt-Delete
or the power button (short of the hard-power-off form, which can corrupt
the filesystem being checked) will be ignored by systemd while such a
fsck is in progress.
