This has been superseded by a better scheme. Init scripts are held in /etc/init.d and /etc/rc.boot.
At startup, scripts in /etc/rc.boot are ran in the order specified by their filename.
Then, when entering a runlevel, all the scripts in /etc/rc<level>.d starting with K are run in the order of their filename, then all scripts starting with S.
There are no scripts in /etc/rc<level>.d, but just links to /etc/init.d. When the link name starts with K, it is invoked with the --stop argument. When it starts with S, it is invoked with a --start argument
So to add/change runlevel setups, one just has to add remove links from rc<level>.d.

This is a very bad explanation, but it gives you the overall scheme.
