RC_DMESG_LEVEL is the correct variable - conf.d/rc is in error and will be
fixed in the next version.

RC_STRICT_NET_CHECKING controls what the "net" dependency fullfills - it does
not and never has started anything automatically.
I believe this new behaviour you are seeing is called COLDPLUG when this
happens at boot time and HOTPLUG there after. These have simple yes/no
settings in conf.d/rc.
Please note that baselayout doesn't actually do any hot/cold plugging itself -
it merely controls udev/hotplug to some extent.

Yes, that allows COLDPLUG/HOTPLUG on everything but net services - it's used
for fine tuning if you like. This is also documented in /etc/conf.d/rc
