Short answer - yes.
a) You have your systemd service definition generated by a
non-root(and container also in whole "belongs" to that user)
b) Now you want system's sytemd(not user's) to have it to
manage(from /etc/systemd/ .. system or user, whichever
Unfortunately that doesn't work well. Last time we checked there were a
number of issues. A big blocker was that systemd threw an error on the
created PID and CID files. At the moment, user services must be started by
this specific user.
