No.  Systemd services have "types".  Some of these types (simple, forking)
can reasonably be called daemons, because they run a program, or suite
of programs, which is expected to stick around for a while.

Other types (oneshot) are most likely not running a long-lived program.
They may do something like adding a network route, mounting a file
system, removing old log files, etc.  The program only runs long enough
to do whatever it's supposed to do, and then it terminates.
