Why do you think so? My man page says:

              Return exit status 0 instead of 1 if no actions are  (would  be)

So more severe problems should still be flagged with an error code. For
example I just checked

  start-stop-daemon --start --exec /no-such-file --oknodo

and it does return an error.
