init.d script to systemd with systemd-sysv-generator

Hello,when I converted my init.d script to systemd with systemd-sysv-generator and started the systemd service I saw that my init.d script does the same work and of course I can manage the service with the systemctl commands.Is the service considered init.d and systemd and if yes shouldn't it be considered systemd only?

From the man page:

systemd-sysv-generator is a generator that creates wrapper .service units for SysV init scripts in /etc/init.d/* at boot and when configuration of the system manager is reloaded. This will allow systemd(1) to support them similarly to native units.
So, it does not convert the init.d service. Rather, it leaves the init.d service as it is and creates a unit definition file that manages it. The unit file is created dynamically at each boot and daemon-reload event.

You can consider it an init.d service or a systemd service or both, as you like.
