To be precise, no, it doesn't overwrite the configuration. But yes, it
sets the default theme (by calling the relevant plymouth command). 

The whole point of desktop-base is to provide a theme for the whole
desktop. For now, if you want to only use a subset of the themes, yes,
you have to reconfigure that at each upgrade. If you have an idea on how
to do that more smoothly, you're welcome to propose it.
