C-c C-c, C-M-x, C-c r are on in .Rd buffers. Anything else you can add
to Rd-mode-map.

In the development version of ESS there is a non-standard hook
ess-presend-filter-functions. You can add to it locally in Rd-mode:

   (defun my-substitute-% (str)
     (replace-regexp-in-string "\\\\%" "%" str))
   (add-hook 'Rd-mode-hook
             (lambda () (add-hook  'ess-presend-filter-functions
                                   'my-substitute-% nil t)))
This substitutes \% with %, only in code submissions from Rd buffers.
