It does run at 00:11 and 12:11 on Sunday, I know because I do see it:
It is a backup and it takes a while.

I have had a lot of trouble with anacron deciding to "catch up" on
missed cron jobs which were never actually missed. I finally decided
that anacron wasn't worth the trouble it caused, so I disabled the
anacron service and haven't had any duplicate cron runs since.

SO, it means that you only run crond (and not anacron)
Question,
If crond was interrupted for some reasons, does anacron would restart it
at 12:11 ?
