sorry, I'm bit confused. And little bit moving it into philosophy: generally,

The behaviour in SuSE/openSUSE since I know it is to leave the data and
configuration intact. The installation/removal/upgrade by rpm only
touches the code. And also the config, but never replacing it fully:
sometimes the new config is activated, sometimes the old. Both versions
are in place, one renamed.

Actually an rpm feature.
