Folks interested in this issue can watch this bugzilla:

We're waiting for systemd-239-55.el8 sources to show up after which we
will build this and publish to CentOS Stream. Right now this appears
to be an infrastructure issue and the appropriate folks are working on
that, but we also want this package to pass the proper checks before
we build.
