You need to enable the service through systemctl. Here's a long
discussion that looks at quite a few of the things that can affect
getting rc.local functional.
Quite a bit more to it than just putting a script there:

Well....

I did nothing else other than create a /etc/rc.d/rc.local ...

[egreshko@f16-1 rc.d]$ ll
total 36
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 init.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc0.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc1.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc2.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc3.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc4.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc5.d
drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Mar 8 01:44 rc6.d
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 39 Mar 25 23:36 rc.local

with

#!/bin/sh -e

#exit 0

touch /tmp/XXXX


And it on reboot a file with name XXXX was in /tmp

[egreshko@f16-1 rc.d]$ ll /tmp/XXXX
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0 Mar 25 23:37 /tmp/XXXX

what does
systemctl status rc-local.service shows?
try
systemctl enable rc-local.service show?

both the above statements fail with and error messagwe : No such file or
directory.
