You're probably fine, but I have to note your behaviour is annoying.

So what exactly makes you think that when you start dnsmasq via
systemd unit file it's going to execute /usr/local/sbin/dnsmasq rather
than /usr/sbin/dnsmasq ? If you check the unit file you'll almost
certainly see it hardcoding the binary in /usr/sbin.
