systemctl start sensord.service
returns exit code 0 and prints nothing in syslog or to the console, but sensord is not running afterwards (as shown by ps -ef | grep sensord).

Folks, this is caused by the new lm_sensors.service script not creating a lock file /var/lock/subsystem/lm_sensors, which /etc/rc.d/init.d/sensord expects.
I've commented out that block (as a test) and it now starts fine. I guess the real fix is to setup sensors as a proper systemd service.
Or patch the lm_sensors systemd unit:

This problem still exists in Fedora 17.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
(In reply to comment #3)
> This problem still exists in Fedora 17.
I'll second that!
The patch from comment #2 will fix the issue.
I became a new lm_sensors maintainer.
As this issue is already fixed in Rawhide and there are apparently no other differences than the init file, I believe the Rawhide branch can be merged into the previous branches without worries. It should fix the issue and make the git tree clean again.

I can report that after installing lm_sensors-3.3.2-4.fc17 from updates-testing (which also pulls in lm_sensors-sensord-3.3.2-4.fc17), this happens:
