This turned out to be a regression in util-linux 2.26.x. :-(
I downgraded to 2.25.2 and behold:

tux>findmnt /   
TARGET SOURCE    FSTYPE OPTIONS
/      /dev/sda1 ext4   rw,noatime

tux>mount -o remount,lazytime /

root>findmnt /                  
TARGET SOURCE    FSTYPE OPTIONS
/      /dev/sda1 ext4   rw,noatime,lazytime

Sorry for the noise.
