logrotate.timer is enabled statically via /usr/lib/systemd/system/ symlink. [Install] section does not bring any value, since user cannot disable it, only mask it.

This will avoid confusion in "systemctl status logrotate.timer" saying it is disabled and wrong "systemctl is-enabled logrotate.timer" output.
This task depends upon

Perhaps it would be best to not automatically enable this timer and leave the decision to the admin.
