Questions about startup scripts

Hi team,

As I know these scripts with the path "/etc/rc*.d/S*" control which service will be start when system boot up.I just want to know which program or script calls them? I am using Ubuntu.
Thanks a lot.

init , the process with pid 1 call all the scripts that are started with S in /etc/rc*.d/ dir.

You can check in
ps -ef
the parent process id.
