You have to create these scripts manually by linking them to net.lo e.g.
Code:
cd /etc/init.d
ln -s net.lo net.wlan0
rc-update add net.wlan0 default

It's also mentioned like that in the Gentoo Handbook:

ade05fr, you are correct you do not have to do it. I have no link for wlan0 in my init.d.
The only thing I start from rc-update is NetworkManager. Also /etc/conf.d/net, network,
and wpa_supplicant all are empty. The micro-code for my wireless gets loaded by the
kernel, and then my wireless conects. I need to enter the password for gnome-keyring
and that is all. On my Gnome3 system I don't even have to do that. Much more information
is required to know why you don't see the wireless.
