My understanding is that when we do 'chkconfig --add libvirtd' in the
%post section, it loooks at these magic headers we have:

  # Default-Start: 3 4 5
  # chkconfig: 345 97 03

If there is no 'Default-Start', and the first 'chkconfig'field is '-'

  # chkconfig: - 97 03

then all the initial symlinks in /etc/rc.d/rcX.d  will be disabled.
So immediately after RPM install, it won't be configured to start
on boot,  and the user would need to menually run to turn it on

 chkconfig libvirtd on
