When using Wordpress package from repos in Debian (and Centos also), you
never edit /usr/share/wordpress/wp-config.php

 * WordPress's Debianised default master config file
 * Please do NOT edit and learn how the configuration works in
 * /usr/share/doc/wordpress/README.Debian

That's the way linux packaging do. Configs files are in /etc, logs in
/var/log and so on. So it's perfectly normal

You should instead edit /etc/wordpress/config-www.domain.tld.conf

/etc/wordpress/config-www.domain.tld.conf is the same as the usual

If you have multiples Wordpress virtualhosts on your server, you can use
different Wordpress config files
