How so? As an admin you can always comment out any conf.d file completely
if you don't want what is in there. After which dpkg will come with the 
usual prompt at package upgrade about the conf-file being changed allowing 
you to keep it that way without any effort. 

How is this significantly different from any other configuration provided by 
packages?
