Then maybe you could describe what you mean by "change of /etc/inittab
in a maintainer script"?  

Doing sed -i /etc/inittab in a gdm3 maintainer script would definitely
be a RC bug.  Doing update-inittab in a gdm3 maintainer script, after
making sysvinit provide such a program, would not.

Maybe you could tell us which parts of Debian Policy 10.7.4 you find
unclear instead of asking the exact question 10.7.4 answers?
