You should remove the files in the packages that own them. Thus
your dpkg-maintscript-helper calls should be in nginx{,-full,-light,-extras}
but not in nginx-common.

And the upgrade of those packages will then lead to the removal.

nginx-common is a new installation, and not an upgrade. And rm_conffile
is only activated on upgrade if you supply a version parameter like you
