It seems it has something to do with policy-rc.d. After I removed any
trace of policy-rc.d and uninstalled the policyrcd-script-zg2 package,
invoke-rc.d started behaving like you said: if the service is disabled,
it wouldn't start it.

As soon as I reinstalled policyrcd-script-zg2, invoke-rc.d is starting
the services again.

So, is this expected behaviour, or is it a bug that I should report?

root@zero:~# aptitude purge policyrcd-script-zg2
The following packages will be REMOVED:
Removing policyrcd-script-zg2 ...
Processing triggers for man-db ...

root@zero:~# invoke-rc.d cups start

root@zero:~# aptitude install policyrcd-script-zg2
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Setting up policyrcd-script-zg2 (0.1-2) ...
update-alternatives: using /usr/sbin/zg-policy-rc.d to provide
/usr/sbin/policy-rc.d (policy-rc.d) in auto mode

root@zero:~# invoke-rc.d cups start
[ ok ] Starting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd.
