If you rename all symlinks to K??, as the patch does, you will get such a behaviour. I.e. when you boot your system, the service will not be started automatically. It also won't be stopped or started when you change a runlevel, even if you have started it manually. Yeah, maybe the terms automatic and manual are clearer for what is actually happening.
