Delay CSF startup at boot vs Read Only on csf.service

I've had good success at setting the csf.service to delay the start of csf for three minutes after rebooting the server.

This has been done as a last resort in case the service completely locks me out for some reason. At least that way I can reboot the server and have a three minute window to log in before a failed csf configuration or update locks me out.

My question for discussion is this, the edit for the delayed startup is done at /usr/lib/systemd/system/csf.service (on CentOS 7) however it seems that each time csf is updated it eliminates the startup delay that I added into this file.

The file at /usr/lib/systemd/system/csf.service is installed with 644 permissions. Does anyone know if setting this file to 444 permissions will break the update process for the csf software?
