rc.sysinit mystery

In the last section of the F16 System Administrator's Guide it says that
sysctl is run by executing the rc.sysinit script against the parameters
in sysctl.conf.

Now there is no /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit script in F16 so that leaves me
with two questions:
1: Who should I send the suggestion to that the section should be
2. I know I have seen it somewhere but what system program runs sysctl
to set the kernel parameters?
