It should read:
test -z "$RUN_package_AT_BOOT" && echo $(basename $0) | grep -q '^S' && exit 0
It was just an untested example fragment. The idea is to check to see if
the script is being called via one of the sysvinit 'S' symlinks. This lets
you call '/etc/init.d/$PACKAGE' from the command line even if
/etc/default/package is set to prevent startup at boot. It doesn't fix the
problem of daemons being started on reinstallation, though.

I don't understand what you are asking.

If you disable all the K links the daemon won't be shut down properly on
halt or reboot and won't be stopped when entering init 1. I also don't see
why the absence of StartCfgFile should completely disable the script.
