I'd like to get the current configuration of journald, similarly to question How to view systemd's runtime global config?

How can I do this?

Specifically, I have set some of the available parameters for log rotation but journald seems to obey other values. I would like to see the current values of all parameters (SystemMaxUse, SystemMaxFileSize, etc) to have a better understanding of what limits the current log retention. For now, I only have the message given by journald at startup:

System journal [...] is 5.8G, max 12.0G, 6.1G free.
