Well, let's take the example of konqueror:

Start-Date: 2011-02-07  22:14:36
Commandline: apt-get --no-install-recommends install konqueror
Install: libkonqsidebarplugin4a:i386 (4.4.5-2, automatic), kdebase-bin:i386 (4.4.5-2, automatic), konqueror:i386 (4.4.5-2)
End-Date: 2011-02-07  22:14:47

(/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/konqueror is empty)

Start-Date: 2011-03-15  21:12:58
Commandline: apt-get --purge remove konqueror   
Purge: konqueror:i386 (4.4.5-2)
End-Date: 2011-03-15  21:13:03

Start-Date: 2011-03-15  21:13:54
Commandline: apt-get --reinstall --no-install-recommends install konqueror
Install: konqueror:i386 (4.4.5-2)
End-Date: 2011-03-15  21:14:01

(/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/konqueror remains empty)

dpkg -i konqueror_4%3a4.4.5-2_i386.deb

(/usr/share/doc/kde/HTML/en/konqueror full of stuff)
