Usually I'd agree, but let's assume you change something in the file
that comes with dovecot in the future, systemd will still use the one in
/etc/system.d/system and you'd never know that the original file has
ever even changed.

On the other side, if with the next version of dovecot this
NoNewPrivileges issue will not have been resolved, you just change the
file again.
If it has been fixed, all is good anyway.

Anyhow, both concepts are valid in this instance in my opinion.
