I agree, It makes sense to replace * with *.conf. Added in 1.0.6. 

There may be the situation when you have not touched default nginx.conf,
so it would be upgraded, but config files without .conf suffix were added
to conf.d dir, and they would not be included after upgrade. I have no idea how 
to fix it with post/pre install scripts correctly, so check your configs after upgrade.
