Init scripts don't get run exiting a level.

If you want a service up in level x, rc.x has an S??service.

If you want a service down in level y, rc.y has a K??service.

If you don't have either, it will depend on your previous runlevel.

An example:

[root lh4 etc]# find /etc/rc.d -name "*sshd"
/etc/rc.d/rc4.d/S55sshd
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd
/etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K25sshd
/etc/rc.d/rc5.d/S55sshd
/etc/rc.d/rc1.d/K25sshd
/etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S55sshd
/etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K25sshd
/etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S55sshd
