LXCs show failed systemd service: sys-kernel-config.mount: Why

Hello all,
I run PVE 7.4-3 and use LXC containers.

All containers show the systemd-service sys-kernel-config.mount as failed. They show no problems in practice, so I wonder if I should just diable this service.
Any thoughts ?

norbert@media-server:~$ sudo systemctl
  UNIT                                             LOAD   ACTIVE SUB       DESCRIPTION
* sys-kernel-config.mount                          loaded failed failed    Kernel Configuration File System

norbert@media-server:~$ sudo journalctl -u sys-kernel-config.mount

Thanks a lot
