It's most likely that systemd pulls in this target in some way.

Here are the services that require boot.mount on my system:

         "unattended-upgrades.service"->"boot.mount" [color="green"];
         "unattended-upgrades.service"->"boot.mount" [color="black"];

         ""->"boot.mount" [color="green"];
         ""->"boot.mount" [color="black"]; should derive from fstab.

But unattended-upgrades may pull this mount in regardless.
