It depends. I'm not sure there is an "answer" here. It makes sense
to have some of these files conffiles and others not. I also tend to
sway towards anything in /etc should be a conffile (in case the user
modifies it thinking this is true which is my first inclination) and
if it isn't a conffile it should contain prominent notices "DON'T
MODIFY THIS FILE" sort of thing.
So. Your call I think.
