The point I was making is they are files that should/must be removed
(logically) but are not part of either the physical file provided by the
package or a conffile.  Thus, the examples given were rather incomplete.
There are files that will be created by various applications that should
be removed when that package is purged.  Invariably, the removal of
these files will upset someone who expected them to still be there.
