Thanks for the explanation. Maybe I'm confused but I think that in the
upgrade I did from Wheezy to Jessie with systemd I had used
dpkg-statoverride and the changes were persistent in the reboots. That's
why I had thought that upgrading from Jessie to Stretch I would have the
same result.

Thank you! It worked!

Thank you very much for your time.
