The right way to fix it is to use "semanage fcontext" (see "man
semanage") to make that change permanent even after a relabel.

I believe it should be something like:
# semanage fcontext -a -t httpd_config_t "/etc/httpd/vconf\.d(/.*)?"

After that, you can use "restorecon" instead of "chcon":
# restorecon -R /etc/httpd/vconf.d

I did not test those above, so if you want to add them to the Wiki
page you should test them before you do.

But I still agree that just using "conf.d" achieves exactly the same
results with a lot less work, so it would still be my advice...
