'journalctl -u crond --since today' does not produce the same output as
'journalctl --since today | grep cron' (which more or less resembles what I
have in /var/log/cron). Shouldn't -u crond produce the same output (more or
less) as /var/log/cron?

It has been a while since I tested, but I recall one entry for the command
crond was executing, and one entry for STDOUT of that command. If you see
something different, can you share your cronjob and the relevant journal
entries, so I can correct that conception?
