does /etc/sysctl.d/ really obeyed and does really override /etc/sysctl.conf

but this does not make sense
the idea behind all .d is to allow packages to provide default (either
kernel defaults or distro defaults)
because the other choice is to use %post and sed
eg. let's say I made a firewall package that needs to enable
forwarding, it would put it in a sysctl.d
what do you think ?
what is the added value of having .conf overrides .d ?
