Don't ever do that.  The package system is not psychic.  It can't tell if
you've moved files around behind its' back.

See that's what happens.  If you want to compile your own stuff do it in
/usr/local as that is guaranteed to be off-limits to the packaging system.

try doing

touch /etc/init.d/webmin

and reinstall webmin.  You should get a message about whether you want to
keep your existing file or install the package maintainers one.  Say yes
to that.
