Yes, that agrees with systemd not knowing about dnsmasq.

I don't know why you'd want to do that since you should be running
named instead of dnsmasq.

Delete the version you just installed via the apt package manager and
do a search and destroy mission to get rid of both the other copy of it
and the associated configuration.

Running "updatedb; locate dnsmasq" is probably the fastest way of
finding it and its associated files. Anything with a similar name in
/etc/init.d is probably its launcher script, so that can go too. If you
have an /etc/rc.local file, check its contents because its run as part
of the sysVinit process. It shouldn't have anything about dnsmasq in it
but you never know...
