While this doesn't directly answer your question, does anything on the
following page provide a clue?

It's clear from this page that Slurm and Systemd are compatible.

Upon checking an Arch Linux system:

cgroup on /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu,cpuacct type cgroup

shows that the control group is mounted.

This doesn't tell us how they worked around the issue. Do you have the Slurm
unit file for systemd? This might contain the necessary ingredient, but that's
just a guess on my part.
