Plenty of services don't run from inetd / xinetd at all.  They do their
own listening.  They get started in your /etc/runlevel.conf file.
Here's a fragment of mine:

20	-	S		/etc/init.d/ssh
20	0,1,6	2,3,4,5		/etc/init.d/postfix
20	0,1,6	-		/etc/init.d/vsftpd

Of course, the vsftp never gets turned on...

Coincidentally, /etc/runlevel.conf is one very nice feature of grml.
You can easily see just which services run during given runlevels.
