- the .config script is not guaranteed to be invoked at install time unless
  the postinst sources confmodule (installing with apt will run the .config,
  but installing with dpkg won't)
- the use of confmodule in the postinst is (unfortunately) used for
  magically registering debconf templates and purging them on package

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
