No it cannot. ucf offers *dpkg-like* conffile managment for
configuration files that are not shipped in the deb but are generated
at install time, i.e. you get "file foo changed. ... Y or I : install
the package maintainer's version, ...".
NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
