Installed a different distro recently, .. and /etc/ssh only had .d

drwxr-xr-x 1 root root    0 Jan  7 10:46 ssh_config.d
drwxr-xr-x 1 root root    0 Jan  9 14:50 sshd_config.d/

Which, of course, were empty; the only sshd_config on the system was:


Which SHOULD be the "global configuration", BUT it gets clobbered if ssh
is updated! Normally, one would expect the NEW version to be
sshd_config.distnew and not overrite, but not the case.

Any experience with using ssh_config.d properly? Can't find anyting on
