looking more into fedora(s) structure of what they have:
/sbin/init -> ../bin/systemd

  ls -lZ /sbin/init
lrwxrwxrwx. root root system_u:object_r:bin_t:s0       /sbin/init -> 
[justin at Linux-2 ~]$ ls -lZ /bin/systemd
-rwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:init_exec_t:s0 /bin/systemd

using chcon on:
chcon system_u:object_r:init_exec_t:s0 /sbin/init
seems to not change this for whatever the reason. keep in mind I am not 
sure how systemd runs or is setup.
