The recipe gives higher precedence to Droid Sans globally if fonts-droid
is installed, in the same manner as 64-wqy-zenhei.conf gives higher
precedence to Zen Hei globally if fonts-wqy-zenhei is installed. So it
alters the default fontconfig order, but that order can be changed via
language specific recipes. For instance, in Ubuntu we make Takao fonts
be preferred in case of a Japanese locale.
