see ie 434604 or 650165 or just point to /usr/share/doc/ucf/examples/postrm

and policy 6.5:

disappearer's-postrm disappear overwriter overwriter-version
 The postrm script is called after the package's files have been removed or 
replaced. The package whose postrm is being called may have previously been 
deconfigured and only be unpacked, at which point subsequent package changes 
do not consider its dependencies. Therefore, all postrm actions may only rely 
on essential packages and must gracefully skip any actions that require the 
package's dependencies if those dependencies are unavailable.
