That's probably the issue; avahi-autoipd usually tries to use it's own
user and drop privileges after launch.  Fedora avahi-autoipd package

/usr/sbin/groupadd -f -r avahi-autoipd
/usr/bin/id avahi-autoipd >/dev/null 2>&1 || \
        /usr/sbin/useradd -r -g avahi-autoipd -c 'avahi-autoipd' -s /sbin/nologin -d %{_localstatedir}/lib/avahi-autoipd avahi-autoipd
