force-confmiss does not work


I'm trying to reinstall smb.conf file as it came with samba-common.

However, even when I reinstall samba-common (into which it seems to appear) with the force-confmiss option, it won't get reinstlled:

# apt-get -o DPkg::Options::="--force-confmiss" --reinstall install samba-common

is this a problem of samba-common package?
How to get the file reinstalled, amongst purging and reinstalling it?
