No. Generally update-rc.d is a tool for maintainer scripts not for the admin to use. Its manpage says explicitly: If any files /etc/rcrunlevel.d/[SK]??name already exist then update-rc.d does nothing. This is so that the system administrator can rearrange the links, provided that they leave at least one link remaining, without having their configuration overwritten. > After every package upgrade of e. g. apache, I must call this command again, > because start links were be installed again.

PS. this is a topic for debian-user not debian-devel -- Michał Politowski Talking has been known to lead to communication if practised carelessly.
