As long as that file isn't marked as conffile, that is correct. (Of
course, "keeping the admin changes" includes to me "there must be no
information loss during the handling", which leads to "there needs to
be a way to undo the change". And none of these sentences is specific
to file-rc or any of the other tools and packages discussed in this
