No it doesn't in my case. As I wrote above, I manually edit the
.config file the way I want it and run make-kpkg immediately
afterwards on it. It looks like make-kpkg then runs make oldconfig,
which changes my edited .config back to what it was before (i.e. in
the state left by make config/menuconfig/xconfig).
