No, that's incorrect.  Modifying non-conffile config files belonging to
other packages is also not allowed except when the owning package provides
an interface that other packages should use for this purpose.

There is an interface (currently encapsulated in the common maintainer
script code shared by PHP extensions) for adding and removing extensions to
php.ini, but that's it.
