How about a check in the code of sshd to make sure it has the necessary

I'm wondering if it would be better to do those check when it starts or
when someone logs in. The former would show the problem early but the
admin would have to look in the event log to see the error message
(especially after a reboot).

The latter would allow to send the error message to the local console
(local to the user, remote from the point of view of sshd) and there
would be a human who can read it.
