No, there is a directory (/etc/rc.d) which contains a collection of rc scripts. This list is from my desktop machine:
The rc.S script runs at startup, then rc.M runs when the system goes multiuser. rc.6 runs at restart, and rc.0 runs at shutdown. rc.4 runs when going into [xgk]dm mode. rc.K runs when going into single-user mode. All the various daemon-specific rc files are run by one or more of the preceding files at the appropriate times, or they can be run independently as, for example, '/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start', etc.
It's a very nice, clean system if you ask me.
