AFAIK, technically those are LSB-style init scripts, and have nothing
to do with sysvinit 'proper' (upstream sysvinit, that I believe Debian
packages as sysvinit-core + sysvinit-utils + bootlogd + ...), which
only understands /etc/inittab. Sysvinit a.k.a. van Smoorenburg init is
just the init program, plus telinit, shutdown, halt, poweroff, reboot,
and some other support programs, and seems to be conflated too often
with the (mostly) shell-based rc subsystem that Debian and derivatives
ship with (sysv-rc + initscripts + lsb-base init-system-helpers +
insserv + …). And which is probably the only one that uses LSB-style
init scripts these days.
