I'm not aware of any exit points for startup (totally untested since I
don't have the luxury of performing an IPL nor endsbs *all with a
following strsbs QCTL) but you could potentially write a CL program that
calls the 'QSYS/CALL QSYS/QWDAJPGM' that is on the routing data for the
QSTRUPJD and then executes the remaining programs/commands you need and
change the jobd to have routing data to call your custom startup routine.

I am a wee bit reluctant to modify the start up programs. IBM does
occasionally change those. Sometimes quite drastically. I don't want to
get into a debate on the pros/cons of doing so. Nor be told to just "man
up" and do it. Nor do I want to get into a discussion over my definition
of "drastic".

What I really want to know is, are there any exit points for system start
up? Like before leaving restricted state, and after leaving restricted
