[Icecast] "Could not create listener socket on port" error only when using systemd service

I'm using icecast via Fedora 37 package and systemd service to start.

I've added multiple <listen-socket> but get:

"EROR connection/connection_setup_sockets Could not create listener 
socket on port xxx"

Nothing listens on the ports in question, I verified via nc(1) and 
manually starting icecast via

"/usr/bin/icecast -c /etc/icecast.xml"

I can't find anything (chroot?) in icecast.service file [1] that might 
explain how the port is used for a short time causing start to fail.  
Anyone have an idea what to try?
