usbmuxd should be moved to systemd-sysusers to create its user and group. It would be very simple, a simple line like this should be enough to do exactly the same as

u usbmux 140 "usbmux user"
This task depends upon

If it being changed consider dropping the fixed uid/gid 140 as it does not seem to serve any purpose. just seems to need a usbmux user and no file in the package is owned by that user / group.
