It's not actually starting anything, but it's giving the message anyway.
The format of the message is normally

"starting nfs daemons <daemon1> <daemon2> <daemonN> ."

But since no daemons are started now, you see just the "." 
This is indeed a bit confusing, perhaps it should say something like
"no daemons started" if norhing happened.

Anyway, your system is working correctly.
