I didn't see it in the documentation, that's why I asked.
I double checked my execution of the postconf command. I ran postconf with the -c option and I also ran postconf with postmulti both returned the same results.
Of course, now I can't reproduce what I observed before.
I realize now that I hadn't disabled cfengine when I did my testing earlier and I bet my main.cf
was fixed in between my edits. I should know better.
Thanks for the quick response

I suspect that this is due to pilot error (somehow you did not

tell the postconf command to look in the right main.cf file).
