It's up to you how to do it.  Various examples include:

1) Some functionality may be configured dynamically with files on 
filesystem and checking them with try_files / if.  E.g. this is 
how people typically implement "maintenance" page.

2) The auth_basic module uses data from auth_basic_user_file, 
which is expected to be dynamically changed.  Currently it's just 
re-read on each request.
