Normally, the configuration files belonging to a package get an option
to be updated when the package itself is updated. If you need to
restore a package to its default settings, reinstalling it with
--force-confask,confnew,confmiss should work:

(One way that has to work is apt remove --purge followed by installing
the package anew. This is less convenient because all packages that
depend on the package you are removing will have to be removed too.)

Best regards,
