want to write a systemd service file where a user may not exist.

Hi folks, wondering if people could direct me to a good place to ask this
question. It isn't really a user question, but ... anyways. I work on a
package that can run either under a dedicated user, as a sort of daemon or
server mode, or it can be used by ordinary users directly in client mode
(connecting to daemons elsewhere.)
When I install the package, on older releases, there is /etc/default and I
put a file there to ensure it is disabled by default. That's fine.
in systemd, I use the documented stuff in dh_ and it puts the service file
in the right place.
-- when I do systemctl status sarra ... it says: 'vendor preset:
enabled') I want it to be disabled by default. Couldn't find that.
-- I don't want to create the daemon user on systems where
it will only be used as a client, so in many cases the 'user' specified in
the service file will not exist. How to cleanly handle that?
