systemd of course!
If you're just worried about setting them at boot, see "man sysctl.d".
If you want to know how this works in detail, see
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/systemd/tree/src/sysctl.c You can also
see all the systemd units that make up the former rc.sysinit with the
systemctl show -p Wants sysinit.target
