If they are then they are Not Doing It Right (tm).  All the
conf files should reside in /etc/init.d and the rcn.d contents should
be hard links to the /etc/init.d files - hard links are traditional
because SYSV did not have symbolic links until R4.  So, /etc/init.d
should hold your conf files, what is the beef? ;-)
