Yes: Complete Removal will remove the installed files and *all* the
configuration/setting files that relates to that package (mostly found
in “/etc” and “/var”), while Normal Removal will remove the package's
files but keep it's configuration files and settings, so when you
install the package again you'll find the settings exactly as you left
them.  This is, by the way, _one_ of the *greatest* features of the
Debian Packaging System.
