I think the systemd guys would argue that there is no processes running
other then those that you need.   Removing
some of these could cause other services to break.   If you enable a
service that is only run as multi-user.target then
it will not start if you remove a target.  

Update-done.service and dnf-makecache, probably should be removed.

But I guess what is the cost of running versus removing them?  How would
they be maintained. 

But it would probably be best if  you opened a discussion with the
systemd guys on which of these should not be
run within a container.
