[CentOS] systemd-run does not start scope in the specified slice

It seems that systemd-run does not start the process in the specified
slice when starting a transient scope instead of a service.

I have created a test.slice, and started it:

       # systemctl status test.slice
       ● test.slice - Test slice
          Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/test.slice; static;
vendor preset: disabled)
          Active: active since Tue 2016-04-05 16:50:26 EDT; 2min 27s ago
          Memory: 0B

       Apr 05 16:50:26 abrand04 systemd[1]: Created slice Test slice.
       Apr 05 16:50:26 abrand04 systemd[1]: Starting Test slice.

When running a process using systemd-run,

       # systemd-run --scope --slice=test --unit=test sleep 60 &
       [1] 52359
       # Running scope as unit test.scope.


the process is placed in the system.slice (see CGroup) instead of the
test.slice as specified in the systemd-run command.

       # systemctl status test.scope
       ● test.scope - /usr/bin/sleep 60
          Loaded: loaded (/run/systemd/system/test.scope; static; vendor
preset: disabled)
         Drop-In: /run/systemd/system/test.scope.d

CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)

systemd 219


Am I doing something wrong here? When starting the process as a
service, and not a transient scope, the process is correctly placed in
the specified slice.
