No.  Neither of them actually.

By source package I mean the debian directory that has the information that 
was used to build the .debs they provide.

As an example of the config file question, if I want to add a Postfix 
service in /etc/postfix/master.cf to feed mail back into Postfix from 
amavisd-new after content filtering, can it support that, how does it 
manage to modify the Postfix owned config file, will it break if I've 
already made other changes to the file?
