The main task of this file seems to be setting the environmental
variables defined in /etc/default/rcS. (You can have a look yourself, it
is just a short shell script of 14 lines.)
According to /var/lib/dpkg/info/initscripts.conffiles, vars.sh is not
considered to be a configuration file, so I think it should have been
restored by a reinstall of a reasonably new version of the initscripts
package (vars.sh seems to exist at least since September 2006).
I would be worried if I found that this file had disappeared from my
system and I did not know why.
