Not on SuSE Linux. On SOlaris for example, you will find in /etc/inittab
an entry like:
with the meaning that /sbin/rc2 will be executed in runlevel 2 AND 3 as
well. So all the scripts in rc2.d will be started in runlevel 3 as well
In SuSE you find:
So each runlevel just starts its scripts only.

No, not on SuSE. But you can change your /etc/inittab, if you like to have
this behaviour. Actually, you will find (almost?) all scripts from
/sbin/init.d/rc2.d doubled in /sbin/init.d/rc3.d for the reason, that
runlevel 3 does NOT start the scripts for runlevel 2.
