No, kudzu is the service that looks for new hardware if I recall.  WRT
chkconfig, there is no need for the utility to maintain a database,
script provide them to it.  For instance:

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
# firewall     Configures Linux firewall using iptables
# chkconfig: 345 09 92
# description: Configure Linux IP firewalling, natting, and forwarding
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

the chkconfig line above indicates to chkconfig that this script is
intended to be run in runlevels 3, 4, and 5 and to start (S) it at 09
(S09) and kill it (K) at 92 (K92) for these run levels.
