Nope - it starts by running anything in rc.sysinit, then runs anything
for the default runlevel configured in the inittab file (unless
overriden when grub loads the kernel). There are conventions, but
runlevels are pretty much just a way of offering multiple configurations
to boot into - e.g graphical vs console, with vs without networking,
etc.
