I see in the rules file that it is now scripted to add snippets to
postinst and preinst scripts for these snippets:

  [ -x /usr/bin/dpkg-maintscript-helper ] && dpkg-maintscript-helper rm_conffile /etc/php5/conf.d/sqlite.ini -- "@"

Unfortunately this problem did not get fixed.  :-(

  $ dpkg-query -W -f='${Conffiles}\n' php5-sqlite
   /etc/php5/conf.d/pdo_sqlite.ini b992d31e9e85d4ebf32df52cdb71240b
   /etc/php5/conf.d/sqlite3.ini 02744ae8db5d3187e23f850fb6d73a5b
   /etc/php5/conf.d/sqlite.ini 68bef915e78cf2ec6b94771d2d49179e obsolete

I think (not sure and have not been able to verify) that this is
because the last version was not

  $ grep php5-sqlite /var/log/dpkg.log
  2012-01-30 02:46:34 upgrade php5-sqlite 5.3.9-4

I think this should handle an upgrade from Squeeze to Wheezy however
which is the most important thing.  I will do some more testing to
verify this and if so then will reduce the severity to minor.

I tried building a test package with the correct version but had
difficulties due to quilt complaints.  I ran out of time but will
resume that effort when able.

This also merges another report of this issue.
