config.sub and config.status in the diff?

I see this construct in many debian/rules files:


  -$(MAKE) distclean
ifneq "$(wildcard /usr/share/misc/config.sub)" ""
  cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.sub config.sub
ifneq "$(wildcard /usr/share/misc/config.guess)" ""
  cp -f /usr/share/misc/config.guess config.guess

This has the effect that config.s{ub,tatus} are included in the
generated .diff.gz file. Is this the intention? I think they should
not be part of the diff. What's the motivation here?
