To be clear, you are saying that systemd won't be updating /etc/mtab
like the mount command tries to do?
systemd does not reset /etc/mtab on boot, and won't update /etc/mtab
with all previous mounts when / becomes writable, and will mount a few
selected mount points with raw syscalls, so that they /bin/mount nevers
sees them, so that it cannot update mtab accordingly.
So if your /etc/mtab is not a symlink you'll most likely see mounts from
a previous boot in it, and will miss a couple of mount points actually
