Why "ps aux" command not behaving as expected after running ". /etc/rc.status" in shell script?

I am running below script on sles 11 and getting different output.

#!/bin/bash
PID=$(/bin/ps aux | grep sro-rest | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}')
echo "PID = $PID"
. /etc/rc.status
PID=$(/bin/ps aux | grep sro-rest | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}')
echo "PID = $PID"

Output:

PID = 2453
PID =

After debugging, I get to know that once we run . /etc/rc.status then output of ps aux is getting short.
See below script for example,

#!/bin/bash
echo "Before ==================================> "
/bin/ps aux | grep java | grep -v grep
. /etc/rc.status
echo "After ==================================> "
/bin/ps aux | grep java | grep -v grep

Output :

Before ==================================>
root      2453  4.9  7.8 8496196 615020 ?      Sl   Jun05  60:31 /usr/java/jre1.8.0_77//bin/java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.library.path=/opt/sro/lib -Dserver.port=50000 -Dspring.profiles.active=gal -jar /opt/sro/ui/lib/sro-rest-SNAPSHOT.jar
After ==================================>
root      2453  4.9  7.8 8496196 615020 ?      Sl   Jun05  60:31 /usr/java/jre1.8.0_77//bin/java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.l

Can anyone explain why different behavior for the same command?

I would like to know how the process can be hijacked, means creating a process without listing in ps -aux command.
