You are now good to go ... since caching-nameserver is not installed
anymore, it will not get updated.

SO ... it won't re-write your config files and you will live happily

There was nothing wrong with your config files before ... just when
caching-nameserver is installed, you can't manually update the config
files because they will get replaced on the next caching-nameserver
update.
