Afaik pkg_delete has a switch (maybe n) that will just tell you what it
would do. I've never tried it but i've seen it in man pages, you might be
able to script something with that to pkg_delete -n/copy the files somewhere

pkg_delete also deletes configuration files, alerting you when a file
has been modified by the user, ex:
pkg_delete: '/path/to/the/file/to/remove' fails original MD5 checksum
- deleted anyway.
but as you can see, it deletes the file anyway!
Hope this helps!
