I'm guessing you covered this ("chkconfig looks correct") but you didn't change to a different runlevel like 2 did you?
[root at xen1 ~]# chkconfig --list xendomains
xendomains 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off
[root at xen1 ~]# grep :initdefault /etc/inittab
[root at xen1 ~]# runlevel
Also, I'm not too familiar with it, but if you're not shutting your domains off before reboot there may be something awry with the save/restore functionality. Personally I have this disabled so I can't speak to whether it would create the symptom you have, but it might be something to try. I have:
[root at xen1 ~]# grep "^[^#]" /etc/sysconfig/xendomains
XENDOMAINS_SHUTDOWN_ALL="--all --halt --wait"
