thanks for pointing this out!

However, this is rather unfortunate, the current setup has been well
tested and in use for ages.

Do you have an idea on how to achieve this in a policy-conform way?

Not touching ejabberd.yml would mean to remove the debconf templates for
configuring ejabberd, not declaring ejabberd.yml a conffile would mean
putting in some extra effort for handling changes.
Are non-conffiles even allowed in /etc ?

Best wishes,
