No, it shouldn't. If you want to override the args, copy the file into /etc/systemd/system and edit it yourself.

Jim: Using /etc/conf.d/ comes in handy with rc.d scripts which are complex and may only reside in one location. However, as Dave points out, systemd gives us an easy way to customize units, so that should be the preferred way.
