When are you doing the ls? In most setups those files get copied into
the initrd, so the ones in /etc probably arnt what would ever be read.
Also, initrd, and for that matter any root filesystem is usually
mounted read-only until an init-script gets to the fstab and reliases
to remount it rw, so attribute changes are a bad way to tell if the
file ever got read :)

Have you rebuilt the initrd?
