Moreover, in

The right way to remove an obsolete conffile in a Debian package

it says to put rm_conffile in the 3 relevant scripts (preinst, postinst, postrm)

However, when I did some research, I found that most packages put
rm_conffile in the  .maintscript file. Where does that come from? It
is even not in the man page. OK that I put rm_conffile in the
.maintscript file as well, instead of in all 3 scripts (preinst,
postinst, postrm)?
