xmrig.sysusers in the original source is installed as xmrig.sysusers rather than xmrig.conf.
See line 37 of the PKGBUILD for xmrig:
install -Dm0644 "${srcdir}/${pkgname}.sysusers" -t "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/sysusers.d"

The entire PKGBUILD is here:

This is supposed to be installed as xmrig.conf as described by man page 5 for sysusers.d:

This causes the xmrig instances to return user errors, see the attached log file.

Additional info:
xmrig 6.18.0-1

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install xmrig from community
2. Start xmrig instance (any instance name will work), systemctl start xmrig@xmrig
4. journal -xeu xmrig@{instance here}.service
   tmp (2.4 KiB)
