Metricbeat configuration file from package repository is always detected as changed and stops auto upgrade process

I'm using metricbeat installed from APT repository in Ubuntu. I've all hosts configured to auto upgrade packages (for example, with rules in unattended-upgrades). However, on every upgrade of metricbeat, even though minor releases, APT stops asking to confirm if I want to use de new metricbeat.yml configuration file or the old one. As my metricbeat.yml is different to configure elasticsearch hosts, this process never ends like expected.

How can I suggest (where can I do that?) the package mantainer to change packages to use the well known 'conf.d' directories? So, my configurations can be done in a file that has no relation with the main files of package.

Thank you!
