OOPS, what a stupid mistake to type. I meant dbconfig-common in the line

@ Henrique de Moraes Holschuh:
Thanks for the careful response. And no, as mentioned above, I didn't
mean to use dpkg-statoverride itself. dbconfig-common uses debconf and
ufc to manage the configuration files. However, dbconfig-common checks
with dpkg-statoverride if the configuration file is registered there and
takes action if it is. However, currently it relies only on
dpkg-statoverride to know if the ownership of the configuration file
should be different, I want dbconfig-common to leave the ownership as it
is if the file already exists.
