dpkg leaves them because they are conffiles (i.e. under /etc).

This is the relevant debian/changelog entry:

jed (0.99.15-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release.  Closes: #112721.
  * Removed 00site.sl and 99defaults.sl to be replaced by single 00debian.sl,
    which will be used for most debian-specific changes
  * Added paste_mode.sl (by John) and an autoload for it in 00debian.sl
  * Added indent_buffer and indent_region_or_line functions to 00debian.sl

I do not see which kind of conflict it may cause, but if you are positive
on the issue, just go ahead and add the removal code to preinst.
