You need to add a /etc/init.d/local script. Debian does not ship one.
As for what starts and stops, debian basically assumes you live in run level 3.
If you install a package, it gets run at boot. uninstall things you do not
want. Another choice is to added configuration to /etc/defaults/foo and make
/etc/init.d/foo read that file.
update-rc.d can reassign boot priorities and what runlevels what gets run at.
