It is not a bug.

networking is in rcS.d for (at least) the following reason:
  S35mountall.sh - mounts local filesystems
  S40networking  - starts networking
  S45mountnfs.sh - mounts NFS volumes from other servers

Machines that mount their /usr or /usr/share or whathaveyou remotely
would like to have networking up before attempting to mount those

Moving S40networking out of rcS.d will require moving S45mountnfs.sh as
well (along with who knows what).
