Yes, that's exactly what they are for... More precisely, they are
symlinks to the scripts in init.d

That's how it's supposed to work.  The scripts you find in ini.d are
controlled by the entries in rc?.d, so different scripts are fired at
different run levels.  In this case, runlevel 2 should be the only one
you need to worry about unless you've customized things otherwise.
