fstab is no longer parsed directly by the mount command at boot time. Since 
C7, when systemd was introduced, it's now parsed by systemd to create unit 
files. It's a transition mechanism. I recommend converting all the mounts 
not created by the installer to permanent real unit files so you can use 
all the power of unit syntax. (How does systemd know the difference between 
generated files and hand-crafted ones? Can one just remove the fstab entry 
once the generated one is present? That would make migration easier.)

Read up on what systemd does with fstab:
