Because these days a default setup is provided for it already at
firstboot-time (and hence the same defaults can be provided in the package
already, too). And it's a system-wide service.

# yum -y install openvpn
[...]
# service openvpn start
Starting openvpn:                                          [  OK  ]
# service openvpn start
Starting openvpn:                                          [  OK  ]
# service openvpn start
Starting openvpn:                                          [  OK  ]
[...]
# service openvpn status
openvpn: service not started
[...]
# service openvpn stop
Shutting down openvpn:                                     [  OK  ]
# service openvpn stop
Shutting down openvpn:                                     [  OK  ]
# service openvpn stop
Shutting down openvpn:                                     [  OK  ]

Hint: Read the initscript header to find out what is missing.

# yum -y install hddtemp
[...]
# service hddtemp start
Unconfigured: hddtemp, see /etc/sysconfig/hddtemp:         [FAILED]

Ah, you would probably call the default openldap server setup
"acceptable", too...  truth is, these services require somebody to edit
the config files if you want more than an "[  OK  ]" to make you happy.
