Ah, you mean rm -rf /etc would do a nice factory reset? I doubt it
...

All systems where I ever made "Factory resets" had some kind of
/rom partitions or overlay file systems. For openSUSE there is a
DVD-ROM to do a Factory reset....

Perhaps it is the systemd mechanism by which services in /usrsomething
can be superseded by placing the same service file under
/etcsomething. Erasing those files on /etc would revert to factory
settings, no?

And it also allows the admin to replicate the changes easily on
another machine, and to do updates without local modifications being
erased.

Is that it?
