I think that's the case. I've seen it before myself and I've been using
buildout in a Zope 3 context for many years now.
buildout doesn't zap parts into oblivion willy-nilly, it only zaps them
when there's an actual need (messing around with the [data] section will
do it, I suspect).
I think that this is a topic worth bringing up on zope-dev.
