If the files are owned by a package (I suspect not) then you can do 
dpkg -S /path/filename

Otherwise they were probably created by the postinst script, so look for
it using
grep -l /path/filename /var/lib/dpkg/info/*postinst
grep -l filename /var/lib/dpkg/info/*postinst

I would guess the package is autofs, and it keeps the original files in
/usr/share/autofs/conffiles in case you want them, and uses the postinst
script to copy them to /etc if they don't already exist.
