This is in chkconfig.c:

while ((ent = readdir(dir))) {
  if (strchr(ent->d_name, '~') || strchr(ent->d_name,
',') 	      || strchr(ent->d_name, '.')) continue;

This causes chkconfig to omit any filename which has a dot
in it anywhere! This is not good.

Fixed in chkconfig-1.0.7-2. Thanks for noticing.
