First of all, the lirc package does not ship any files in /etc/systemd - 
these are by definition custom-maintained files.

Secondly, the --nodaemon *is* indeed used in 
/lib/system/system/lircd.service since this is a simple service. Refer 
to the systemd docs for an explanation.

Note that  any setting in /etc/systemd will overrule corresponding 
setting in /lib/systemd. Again, check the systemd docs.

I'm leaning to closing this as not-a-bug. Please raise these kind of 
concerns which are more like support issues on the upstream mailing list 
at http://sf.net/p/lirc.
