I agree that if there is no symlink for a runlevel then the
state of the service (running/stopped) should not be changed
on entering that runlevel.

The problem originally reported in #156161 is that invoke-rc.d
_starts_ a service in a runlevel which _lacks_ a symlink.

This contradicts what you said above: no symlink = no change.
