It appears now that the haveged(8) init script has 1024-bits hard coded. You'll need to change it there. :/

The systemd service doesn't honor /etc/default/haveged and instead uses /lib/systemd/system/haveged.service. After modifying the file from "-w 1024" to "-w 4096" you will want to issue "systemctl --system daemon-reload" and restart the service to see the changes.

-w nnn, --write=nnn
Set write_wakeup_threshold of daemon interface to nnn bits. Applies only to run level 0.
