Possibly. You can probably argue it two ways.

All the config is in freeradius-config. And that is optional IIRC.
So you can install all the binary packages, and run with your own
config, without installing the default config.

If module-specific config was in module packages then you could
install everything except the -config package, and end up with
just little bits of config on your system, which is rather messy.
Especially if you've put your own config in the standard location,
and installing a module package would then modify your live

Not sure which is the best way - both seem to have arguments for
and against. I think personally I slightly lean towards the
current way, but not entirely sure.
