I've never done a vanilla install and always wondered about this...

Does the vanilla install of postfix provide a with all of the
default settings already commented out?

If so, then gentoo apparently explicitly uncomments them, because every
time I update, the config file update process always wants to uncomment
all of the defaults I commented out again, so I have to carefully refuse
all of these changes...
