Yes. I went on that after the initial review. "conffile" being obvious

No, this is more about questions asked by dpkg when a new version of a
configuration file is provided.

That would be less true. The point is only about configuration files
"conflicts" between the version provided by the maintainer and a
locally -modified version.
