    Please see image with services on my SharePoint 2016 farm. Can someone tell me what there is no "User Profile Synchronization Service" listed?

  • Because it was removed from 2016. If you need UPSS functionality, you must use MIM. Otherwise you can use the built-in AD Import. Here is the AD Import limitations:

    And information on MIM with SharePoint 2016:
