systemd warning

When I backup my containers and vms, I see the following warning message
INFO: restarting vm
WARN: old systemd (< v232) detected, container won't run in a pure cgroupv2 environment! Please see documentation -> container -> cgroup version.
INFO: guest is online again after 163 seconds
INFO: Finished Backup of VM 102 (00:02:43)

However, I have updated my systemd in the PVE
dpkg-query -l systemd
| Status=Not/Inst/Conf-files/Unpacked/halF-conf/Half-inst/trig-aWait/Trig-pend
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version         Architecture Description
ii  systemd        247.3-7+deb11u1 amd64        system and service manager

Also most of my containers are Archlinux based where the systemd is at version 251.4-1 and the 3 debian containers that I have also have the updated systemd (v 247.3-7+deb11u1) -- the same as in the PVE

Why do I still keep getting the systemd warnings?
