Well, it *is* off by default.

Checking the minimal install of the moment:

Install  38 Packages (+160 Dependent packages)

Total download size: 129 M
Installed size: 505 M

In that minimal install, the following disabled services exist:
NetworkManager-wait-online.service
autovt at .service
console-getty.service
console-shell.service
debug-shell.service
dnsmasq.service
ip6tables.service
iptables.service
rdisc.service
saslauthd.service
wpa_supplicant.service
systemd-journal-gatewayd.socket

The follwing 'traditional' services are enabled:
auditd.service
sshd.service
sm-client.service
sendmail.service
NetworkManager.service
crond.service
rsyslog.service
