Package: snmpd
Version: 5.7.3+dfsg-1.7
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I usually edit the /etc/default/snmpd file to customize passed to snmpd when running as a service but it does not have effect under Debian Stretch.
It seems like under Debian Stretch systemd unit file does not read default configurations from /etc/default/snmpd like the init script did on Debian Jessie and previous version.
