Apparently opendkim 2.11 has been polluted/infected by systemd. Lots of
systemd bugreports, notes about being a native systemd daemon but simply
not working from postfix. I downgraded opendkim from 2.11 to 2.9 and
everythings is working again.

Of course i have now put a hold on 2.9 but my other systems will stay at
jessie for the foreseeable future.
