As others have said, check the arguments to your postinst. Here's
an example excerpt:

if [ "$1" = "configure" -a -n "$2" ] && dpkg --compare-versions "$2" lt "3.0pl1-43" ; then

	echo "This is an upgrade from an old version -- restart daemon"

Of course, you'd replace "3.0pl1-43" with the version number of the
*first* version that *doesn't* need to perform the special action.
