Yes.  Any daemon started from within rcS.d/ will be killed by
/etc/rc1.d/S01killprocs and not started again when switching to
runlevels 2-5.  This is the reason why I have recommended to move all
daemon starting out of rcS.d/ and into rc[2-5].d/.  There is a lot of
work left to do before this is done.  Luckily there isn't that that
many daemons started from rcS.d/, so in many installations, switching
to runlevel 1 and back will work.

Perhaps. :)

Happy hacking
