did you observe this after recently changing start.conf from auto to
manual, i.e. without booting in between? Currently, the systemd
generator responsible for establishing the links between the
"postgresql" target and the individual clusters is only run when
"systemd daemon-reload" is invoked (or the system is booted).

If you run "systemd daemon-reload", only the remaining "auto" clusters
should be started.
