Well, policy-rc.d is obeyed by invoke-rc.d, and therefore, by all maintainer

But manually trying to run the initscript will still work.

And sysv-init will STILL run it.  If you want it to not run on runlevel
changes/boot, you NEED to use a K link, or you need to disable it in
whatever alternative initscript you use (such as file-rc, runit, etc).
