I don't think they ever do.

I believe that on boot, the commands are not run as /etc/init.d/blah,
they are run as "/sbin/service start blah" - and that's why your
environment variables don't work. From 'man service':

DESCRIPTION
       service  runs  a  System V init script in as predictable environment as
       possible, removing most environment variables and with current  working
       directory set to /.
