Comment 6 for bug 531912

Scott's recommendation, in general, is that Upstart jobs should be
simple enough that it's reasonable to edit them directly.

/etc/default/ was introduced in the first place because /etc/init.d/
scripts were hard to edit and it was even harder to keep changes merged.
One goal of Upstart is that this should not be the case for Upstart

You have some false positives here - a number of these are reading
system configuration files (/etc/default/locale, /etc/default/rcS)
rather than files specific to that service. My comments only apply to
the latter.
