update-rc.d only makes the links it's told to. It's true that 'default'
will create links in all runlevels
The thing you want is already possible; If you don't want a service to
do anything on reboot, you should remove it's link in /etc/rc6.d/. If
you think in case of a particular service this is best for everybody,
you could try to convince the maintainer of that service not create the
link in the first place.
