systemctl ;)

However, if we install a package with a systemd unit, it automatically
gets enable. You could test it, e.g. install smartmontools. A user who
just want to get "smartctl" needs to manually disable the daemon. The
Ubuntu policy is very bad, it's better to be aware of it, to avoid
serious issues.
