To answer my won question that started this thread:
That page says :

If you have a preference for another init such as sysvinit-core or upstart,
it is recommended to set up APT pinning prior to the upgrade. This may also
be required if you are upgrading LXC containers before the host. In this
case, please refer to Section 5.8.1, “Upgrading LXC guests running on
Wheezy hosts”

As an example, to prevent systemd-sysv from being installed during the
upgrade, you can create a file called /etc/apt/preferences.d/local-pin-init
with the following contents:

Package: systemd-sysv
Pin: release o=Debian
Pin-Priority: -1
