postinstall wiped out my /etc/rc changes


I had made a couple of changes to /etc/rc in order to try the boot splash 
screen (see  
I then did a system upgrade using and etcupdate.  etcupdate runs 
postinstall which prompted me to run postinstall fix rc.  Doing so 
reinstalled the original /etc/rc and wiped out my local modifications.  Not a 
big deal but still unexpected since other changes in /etc are usually left in 

Is this the expected result?  If not, is the problem with etcupdate or 
postinstall?  Should I file a PR?
