Once the debuginfo is installed, however, we have a little bit of a
stalemate, because the regular updates do not update the debuginfo
files, so the symbols and sources get out of synch with the actual
installed software. It's not a big problem---all that's required is
to enable the appropriate debuginfo repos for the update, but I
haven't found a really nice way of doing it. Currently I use

         dnf update --enablerepo *debuginfo


The minimal content of conf file should contain main sections with
enabled and autoupdate parameter.

     A boolean option which controls updates of debuginfo packages. If
     options is enabled and there are debuginfo packages installed it
     automatically enables all configured debuginfo repositories.

Ah, wonderful. The default setting seems to be 'autoupdate=0' though. Is there a problem with changing it to '1'? People who install debuginfos do it for presumably well founded reasons, and I believe enabling autoupdate would serve them better.
