Your '/lib/systemd/system/tor at default.service' is default like on all my 
Debian systems. 

Did you specify the whole path in '%include'? I have:

# Include MyFamily & ContactInfo
%include /etc/tor/torrc.all
# Include Exit Policy
%include /etc/tor/torrc.exit

For me it is like this, the instances from the subfolders use the configs 

/etc/tor	(root:root mode=drwxr-xr-x)
├── torrc.all
├── torrc.exit
├── instances
    ├── 00
      ├── torrc
    ├── 01
      ├── torrc

To rule out a bug, change 'rc.d' to 'rcd'. Without dot in folder name.
