What I've found so far for my own project is that a script in 
/files/etc/uci-defaults folder in source folder should work.
Anyway scripts in /etc/uci-defaults (from any source) are called on 
first boot and apply configuration changes on device, just look at the 
ones you have already there in the rootfs.
