No, the user is not considered asked.

It's not all that difficult to test to see if there is a pre-existing
configuration file and/or if it has been modified. In these
situations, unless the maintainer scripts can determine that the
configuration file is malformed, they probably shouldn't be prompting
the user for anything. They definetly should not be changing anything.
