If you  add:

Wants= mysql.service
After= mysql.service

To the /etc/systemd/system/multi-user.target.wants/opendnssec-enforcer.service

It wil make sure that mysql start before opendnssec-enforcer

If mysql server is not installed on the machine it ignores the line .

So this would fixed the issue

No, the init script name is not the issue here. I'll look into it though.
