There's no such thing as "init". There are many "init systems", but no
such thing as "init". Some folks use the word "init" as a synonym for
sysvinit because 25 years ago sysvinit was the init system on at least
95% of Linux computers. Now, with so many init systems, using the word
"init" as if it's a program is just confusing.

>is declared in /etc/inittab,

/etc/inittab is strictly a sysvinit thing.
