They are dpkg conffiles, and they are config files, but they *should*
be in /etc/ rather than /var. Yes, the maintainer is aware of this.
I guess moving the files to /etc is significant hardship for the
maintainer, so they've decided to leave it.

I don't think it's necessary. The point is that Policy states that
config files go in /etc. Take your cues from best current practice,
not worst current practice. ;)
