The results seem correct. We provide some basic init scripts and such in
the tarball but do not install them. The distro packagers choose which
ones to use (or their own sytem-specific ones).

You can find the basic sysvinit script in the tarball sources at
 - note that Squid-3 versions do not integrate with systemd nor upstart
very well so no .service file is provided.

This is why I usually advise people to leave the squid3 package in
place, then build the "./configure && make install" version over the
top. That leaves the distro integration but with the newer binaries.

Yes. 99.999% or so. :-)
