In Solaris 10, the mountd is controlled by an SMF service. Since it is only necessary to have mountd running if you are exporting a file system via NFS, it is tied to the NFS service, in particular, the nfs server.

So, to start the service, run:

svcadm enable  svc:/network/nfs/server:default

and to stop it, run:

svcadm disable  svc:/network/nfs/server:default

/etc/init.d/volmgt stop

OR

Could you tell us why you need to stop mount d?

There may be a better way to reach your goal, than by messing with mountd.
