Where do I find this? Its not in the pkg git tree nor in bugzilla?

The recommended way to modify the default configuration is to copy
/lib/systemd/system/httpd.socket to /etc/systemd/system/httpd.socket and
then edit it there. That way you can easily drop back to the default
setup by deleting this file again. Files in /etc/systemd/system take
precedence over those equally named in /lib/systemd/system.

No, we don't support that really. And I am not convinced we should.
