     Why would you expect one to exist?

     Same question.

     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
at once.
