Sure. Autoloads don't count as configuration in my book
either. If that's all you need, then putting the script outside of
/etc is fine.
But load-path modifications are indeed configuration issues,
as are setting variables at startup. Or creating derived modes on the
fly. Or any of the various and sundry things site-start.d scripts do.
