      Description

      Puppet Version: 7.6.1
      Puppet Server Version: N/A
      OS Name/Version: CentOS 8.3

      I'm trying to translate the following command into Puppet:

      systemctl stop systemd-coredump.socket
      systemctl mask systemd-coredump.socket

      The Puppet code i've written to do this is:

      service { 'systemd-coredump.socket':
         ensure => 'stopped',
         enable => 'mask',
      }

      Desired Behavior:

      I would expect the service to be stopped and masked.

      Actual Behavior:

      The service is a 'static' service on the system and is resulting in a debug log being printed:

      debug - Puppet - Executing: '/bin/systemctl is-enabled -- systemd-coredump.socket'debug - Puppet - Unable to enable or disable static service systemd-coredump.socket
      

      Running the systemctl commands manually, works just fine.

      Doing a little digging, i found the following code:
      https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppet/blob/main/lib/puppet/provider/service/systemd.rb#L42-L56

      The comment in the block is accurate, however a little misleading because 'static' services are allowed to be 'masked'.
