I have 3 mysql related scripts on my hardy install

$ ls -l /etc/init.d/mysql*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 5755 2008-11-14 17:05 /etc/init.d/mysql
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2515 2008-11-14 17:05 /etc/init.d/mysql-ndb
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1905 2008-11-14 17:05 /etc/init.d/mysql-ndb-mgm

Maybe you should check if you have anything similar

btw, not the problem, but S and K numbers should sum 100. You probably
meant "...all S20mysql ...had been moved to K80mysql", right?
