Wait, am I correct in understanding that (pseudocode -- actual commands may
be wrong):

  systemctl enable apache.service
will not cause apache to be started immediately, but

  systemctl enable postfix.service
  systemctl daemon-reload

will cause postfix to start, and as a side-effect also start the apache that
was enabled earlier but not intended to start?

That would be surprising!
