I think he is actually looking for "dpkg -S /usr/bin/my"

all packages should have a
/usr/share/doc/packagename/changelog.Debian.gz file.

You should not hand-edit modules.conf. update-modules will clobber any
changes you make. instead, create a new file /etc/modutils/local and put
your aliases in there, then run update-modules to update modules.conf

Debian doesn't really enforce any policy regarding runlevels other than
runlevel 2 being the default after a clean install. If you install
gdm/kdm/xdm though, every runlevel will start X until you manually
remove the symlink from /etc/rcx.d
