How did you create them? Manually? You can just use the following:

$ sudo update-rc.d ssh defaults

For more details, you can see: man update-rc.d. Of course, you need to have the startup script /etc/init.d/ssh. As these are just symbolic links.

The files in /etc/rc?.d are just symbolic links, pointing to files in /etc/init.d/. If you do not know what to do for restoring the startup scripts, just reinstall OpenSSH server:

sudo apt-get --reinstall install openssh-server

Your settings in /etc/ssh/sshd_config will be preserved.
