That's because it doesn't....

 From the man page....

       chkconfig  provides  a  simple  command-line  tool  for  maintaining 
  the /etc/rc[0-6].d directory hierarchy by relieving system administrators 
  of the  task  of  directly manipulating the numerous symbolic links in those

So, the "settings" are simply the links themselves....

Say no, then negotiate.
