Well, ;o)) you got me too, ;op ... an experimental machine beside me (a
SUN Netra I with SUNOS 5.8) has ONLY Knn* links in rc0.d.
Ive looked to an older server with SUNOS 5.5 too ... same result. I
began with SUN about 7 years ago on SUNOS 2.6 and remember it same.
The S00halt and S00reboot I introduced myself on the Linuxes I've to
admin. ... for logical reasons. We START halt or we START rebooting.
Sicromoft Wondies does it the same way ;-)))

You got me there, I have been using them for about 15 years. And all
the Unices I know that use SysV deal with S* scripts in runlevels 0 and
6 specially. I first came across this in Solaris.
Here is a discussion from about 5/6 years ago. I'm sure a bit more
digging would bring up some more, but I really have other things to do.
I may be wrong and will be happy to be corrected.
Going to runlevel 0 or 6 will cause the system to be halted or
respectively. For example, if we go to runlevel 6 (reboot) first
all /etc/rc6.d/KXXxxxx scripts will be executed alphabetically with
"stop" as the first argument.
Then the /etc/rc6.d/SXXxxxx scripts will be executed alphabetically
with "stop" as the first argument as well. The reason is that there
is nothing to start anymore at this point - all scripts that are
run are ment to bring the system down.
In the future, the /etc/rc6.d/SXXxxxx scripts MIGHT be moved to
/etc/rc6.d/K1XXxxxx for clearity.
Watch the wrapping.
