Today, since only very few daemons survive in /etc/init.d and /etc/init.d/rc.d, I have no other means to control the major part of them than by using the Services Manager in YaST.
Is there no more any simplified way of controlling daemons, analogous to that described above?
You do not need to use YaST. You can manage them from the command line.
The old "rcSERVICE_NAME start|stop|restart" should work, as long as someone remembered to create the link. If it doesn't, you can create it yourself - see later.
The standard way is:
systemctl status SERVICE_NAME[TAB]
The tab is to complete the name, usually "service" but sometimes "target". Or nothing. Another syntax, with an actual case:
service status syslog
which is simple enough and easier to remember. Try:
it gives the familiar help.
Creating the link would be, for instance:
ln -s /sbin/service /sbin/rcauditd
