Doesn't matter at the end, you can create it manually just fine.

Please note that GPSD_OPTIONS and DEVICES should just be empty if you want
the systemd/hotplug service to work as expected.

And now you are expecting that I magically know what the issue is?
If you want that to work, first start would be to see if udev handles your

That doesn't make a difference here, service handling won't change between
3.22 and 3.23

Just use 3.22, its not october yet. And the the startup part will just work
like 3.23. As long as your gps module does not need 3.23, you can debug your
issues just fine.
