That is part of OpenRC's s6 integration feature, and, although on the
surface it looks like a nice thing to have, the implementation of it
launches s6-svscan with start-stop-daemon, which means that:

* s6-svscan is not supervised.
* s6-svscan's standard output and error are redirected to /dev/null,
so logs from services that don't have a corresponding logger go to the
trash can.

Or at least it was like that last time I checked.

That seems to be the route that Adélie has taken. With an execline
script, /lib/s6/s6-svscanboot, configured in an /etc/inittab 'respawn'
entry. This results in a supervised s6-svscan (by sysvinit), and a
supervised catch-all logger.

I believe they are processed in line order.
