This is a problem many elisp packages have. The older convention was
to add a line (require 'package) to /etc/emacs/site-init.el. 
As this is a configuration file, these changes will stay over
updating.
Each elisp package changing to the new convention using site-start.d
should look in /etc/emacs/site-init.el and remove a line like that if
it is preent. Prompting the installer to do something about it should
be a valid alternative.
