You may not need to do it in preinst, since these files are
created/updated in the postinst (which is the reason they can't be
marked as conffiles in the first place).
If you look at the script I posted, the user is not asked any
questions if the file on the system is the same file that is
currently being shipped. In the general case, I think this is good
enough; if one cares, one can special case the md5sum of the last
non-conffile one shipped and check that, but I hate special cases.
If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work,
the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
