Yes.  Removing that symlink would be fine.

The munin-node package runs a postinst script when it is installed.
That postinst script runs 'munin-node-configure --shell' and saves the
output to a temporary file.  The --shell option causes it to produce
shell commands instead of table output.  Then it feeds that file of
shell commends to a shell.  You can do the same if you like.

  munin-node-configure --shell --remove-also > munin-plugins.sh

Then review the file munin-plugins.sh for what it wants to do.  Edit
as you like.  Then run it.

  sh ./munin-plugins.sh

Note that munin-node-configure will suggest *changes* to your existing
/etc/munin/plugins directory.  If it likes what is there then that
script file that it creates will be empty.  If you were to remove all
of the old symlinks then it would suggest all new ones.  If you
manually add new symlinks there that outside what it wants then it
will create 'rm' suggestions.

If most of them are okay and you just want to add or remove one or
another then I don't understand why you wouldn't just add or remove
one or another?

Perhaps the easiest solution for you would be to purge the package
first and then install it again.  Having purged it all of the old
configuration will be gone.  Installing it again will run the
munin-node postinst script, which runs the munin-node-configure

  # dpkg --purge munin-node
  # apt-get install munin-node
