Not quite, if you leave at least one symlink somewhere in the
rc?.d directories, your config should be left alone (i.e. the
symlinks won't be redone). See the update-rc.d manpage:

:        When run with either the defaults, start, or stop options,
:        update-rc.d   makes   links   /etc/rcrunlevel.d/[SK]NNname
:        pointing to the script /etc/init.d/name,
:        If  any  files  /etc/rcrunlevel.d/[SK]??name already exist
:        then update-rc.d does nothing.  This is so that the system
:        administrator  can rearrange the links, provided that they
:        leave at least one link remaining,  without  having  their
:        configuration overwritten.
