This would have been with "systemctl edit --full nsd" (note the --full).
This is essentially forking the package provided version and shadowing
it for good. This, I believe, is also not desirable because you'd then
miss out on the future improvement by your package maintainer.

Using "systemctl edit nsd" instead will create
/etc/systemd/system/nsd.service.d/override.conf with *just* the local delta.
