No, but you can move the S* links to K* links. This settings would be
preserved by update-rc.d because it does nothing if it finds at least
*one* link left that fits in the [KS][0-9][0-9]{package} naming scheme.

Perhaps every postinst shold do something like this:

  if test -e /etc/rc`runlevel | cut -d\  -f2`.d/S??$DAEMON; then
    /etc/init.d/$DAEMON start

which looks for existence of the S* link in the rcN.d directory with N
corresponding to the current runlevel.
