no, this is not true...

	chkconfig cups off

Will result in

	[root localhost ~]# chkconfig cups off
	[root localhost ~]# chkconfig cups --list
	cups            0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off

Enabling the service via

	chkconfig cups on

results in:

	[root localhost ~]# chkconfig cups --list
	cups            0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
	[root localhost ~]# chkconfig cups on
	[root localhost ~]# chkconfig cups --list
	cups            0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off

In other word, if you do NOT specify the run levels to change, chkconfig will,
by default, "on" or "off" runlevels 2,3,4,5

And in fact, this behaviour *IS* stated in the man page:

	By default, the on and off options affect only runlevels 2,  3,  4,  and
	5,  while reset  and resetpriorities affects all of the runlevels.  The
	--level option may be used to specify which runlevels are affected.

Seems pretty clear to me... Perhaps you haven't read the man page?

All the best,
