My mistake - as I see it now, /etc/sysconfig is managed differently in
*SUSE. Files are not part of RPM, rather they are generated during
installation from templates with fillup command. So usual RPM
configuration file logic does not apply here.

I believe an rpm update does not backup scripts, only configuration
files. Ie, local customizations. And not all customization: changes in
scripts are lost.
