Why would you expect one to exist?

Not really. There is no requirement that there be a one-to-one
correspondence between rc.d scripts and binaries. For example,
there is no binary called "network" yet there is an rc.d script
called "network". rc.d/samba is for convenience. It is a meta-rc.d
script which simply calls all the other samba related rc.d scripts
(winbindd, nmbd, smbd). If you want to manually start or stop
samba, you can use rc.d/samba to get all the samba related daemons
