I've tried to reproduce this, and failed...

$ sudo debootstrap --include=systemd bionic bionic
...
$ ls -lnatr bionic/var/log/ | grep journal
drwxr-sr-x+ 2 0 101 4096 Mar 16 18:23 journal

So fresh installation of systemd works as expected.

I guess we need to trace where/what/why certain cloud-images appear to be lacking this....

This bug was fixed in the package livecd-rootfs - 2.511

---------------
livecd-rootfs (2.511) bionic; urgency=medium

  * Whitelist preserving "unowned" /var/log/journal. Maybe systemd package
    should own the directory, and only adjust the permissions in
    postinst. LP: #1754332
