No really valid reason at all, only that the policy mandates maintainer
scripts to append the "or-true construct" to capture exceptional states.
My first formulation used "rm -f". Then I came to think of lintian
complaining on this within the rules file, and again pointing to the
"or-true" mechanism.

I could use a piece of advice here, and I do not object to changing
the formulation back again!

Best regards,
