RESOLVED with help of 
https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/system_administrators_guide/sect-Managing_Services_with_systemd-Unit_Files#brid-Managing_Services_with_systemd-Extending_Unit_Config

I simply had to (removed former approach first):

1) cp /usr/lib/systemd/clam at .service  /etc/systemd/system/
2) made my changes in copied file
3) perfomed systemctl daemon-reload
4) Checked changes with systemd-delta:
[.. snippet ..]
[OVERRIDDEN] /etc/systemd/system/clamd at .service → 
/usr/lib/systemd/system/clamd at .service
