I don't think so.
/etc/rc.conf.d/ is for the end-user to place files to configure services.
It so happens that it's ideal for the end-user to do so using tools that
automate the process. (Perhaps by installing a package, perhaps by using
the chkconfig(1) utility [which, sadly, is not yet installed by default]).
