'conffile' is dpkg jargon that has a specific meaning: configuration files that dpkg handles specially w/r/t upgrades and removals. Editing a conffile at install time makes no sense. If you want to edit a configuration file, don't ship it as a conffile - in fact, don't ship it at all. Either generate it ex nihilo from a script, or if you feel you need a template, ship the template under another name, to be copied from if the file doesn't already exist.
