In recent journald versions, the default value for Storage is auto. This means persistent log will be used if /var/log/journal exists and volatile otherwise. In my case the directory did not exist. Thought it can help somebody although author's issue was different.

btw persistent storage also doesn't guarantee persistent logs. If it fails to create /var/log/journal, then log will still be volatile.
