You do. I have a metapackage that just Provides logind but is
otherwise empty and is just to fulfil that kind of dependencies.
Of course, should you actually rely on logind functionality, all
hell will break loose, but…

On my systems, libpolkit-qt5-1-1 depends on it, which is needed
for systemsettings, okular and kde-spectacle, the latter two I
actually use, and policykit-1 via libvirt-daemon-system for some
reason‽ Anyway, everything works like that for me. (An old system
even has kdm, which works without that as well.)
