Why the services do not start at installation?

I've seen this sometime now, but not finding anything in the ubuntu man about this peculiar policy-rc.d binary that prevents services from being started/restarted/stopped when called by dpkg/apt, so I would like to know what is the reason of this.

Setting up lxc (0.9.0-0ubuntu3.6) ...
invoke-rc.d: policy-rc.d denied execution of start.
invoke-rc.d: policy-rc.d denied execution of start.
invoke-rc.d: policy-rc.d denied execution of start.

Apparently, no package owns this binary:

dpkg -S /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /usr/sbin/policy-rc.d
