the changelog states for adduser 3.29 (written some time in 2001):

  * /etc/adduser.conf is not marked as a conffile anymore. Instead, it
    is moved to /usr/share/doc/adduser/examples/adduser.conf and will
    be copied in postinst if it does not exist already.

but it doesn't give any further explanation for it. 

Maybe we shoudl revert that decision...
