How to handle config files

The porters handbook describes a way to handle config files:
It is recommended to do it this way for keeping changed files after
deinstallation on the system. But the example is not really clear to me.
What does this line do:
@exec if [ ! -f %D/etc/orbit.conf ] ; then cp -p %D/%F %B/orbit.conf; fi
Nothing is said about those variables... %D (which seems to be
%%PREFIX%%) and %F or %B.
Can anyone give me some help?
Thanx a lot!
