Please note that smartmontools 6.7 has not yet been officially released. 
This "6.7-0.r4775" package is some build from a ~8 weeks old SVN 
snapshot. Which distribution or package source do you use ?

IIRC there are distributions which use "smartmontools" instead of 
"smartd" for the service name.

If there is no systemd service file (or initd script) for smartd in this 
package, this is a packaging issue. Please contact the maintainer of 
this package.

Note that we not provide packages for specific Linux distributions. The 
packages from https://builds.smartmontools.org/ do not contain any initd 
script or service file.
