Right.  But if the sysadmin customizes any part of that configuration—
even something completely unrelated—which is very likely, then he or she
will be prompted.  So if the defaults are fine, then the defaults are
likely to be fine in the future.  If the defaults are not fine, which
often they are not, then the sysadmin will be prompted.
