None of these files are actually shipped - /etc/X11/X is a symlink
created automatically, depending on which X server packages are
installed and selected, XF86Config-4 is created by dexconf, xf86cfg, or
xf86config, Xwrapper.conf is created by debconf, and
default-display-manager is an alternative created by any of the display
managers - gdm, xdm, kdm, etc.

As such, none of them are shipped with any of the actual XFree86

Hope that helps,
:) d
