It's an error which has a logical explanation:
before 2.3.4 the rc script was simply copied from the sysvinit package.
That file already had the correct permissions. But now the script
doesn't come from a package anymore and is manually written (copy
copy/pasted from the book) and now we have to set permissions ourselves.
I'll fix this in 2.3.5
