It's not invoked at all in site-start.d. If it were, then of course,
that would be configuration information.
I'm thinking about the ones that invoke the program, but instead,
merely make its commands available. A typical example would set a few
variables (pointing it at Debian locations for things, the sort of
thing that would be specified at compile time for a binary), and then
set some autoloads (the equivalent of putting the binaries into /bin).
