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 https://git.archlinux.org/svntogit/packages.git/tree/trunk/usbmuxd.install?h=packages/usbmuxd:

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.
https://github.com/libimobiledevice/usbmuxd/blob/46bdf3ec90acf3916ee8aba622a7da9da5eb8e06/systemd/usbmuxd.service.in#L6 just seems to need a usbmux user and no file in the package is owned by that user / group.
