I think you got me wrong,... I'm not talking about purging, but
As far as I can see:
$ dpkg-deb -x resolvconf_1.67_all.deb .
$ l etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resovconf
ls: cannot access etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/resovconf: No such
file or directory
That file is no longer part of new installations, right? It's also not
created or copied by the maintainer scripts.
That means that older installations will never have it removed (unless
the package is purged - but why should one?) unless you use the correct
debhelper scripts, that remove the obsolete config file, if it wasn't
 See e.g.
