If you take a look at the /etc/init.d/exim4 script, you will see that it
is running update-exim4.conf whenever you start, restart, or reload
exim4. update-exim4.conf is a script which collects the various parts of
the config file from /etc/exim4/conf.d and builds them into a single
"running config" file which it places in
/var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated. Now that a monolithic config file
is again an option, i believe that it merely copys /etc/exim4/exim4.conf
to the running config.
