Are you really suggesting that we shouldn't modify config.sgml to note
that "autovacuum = off" does not actually imply that "the autovacuum
daemon is disabled"? ISTM that plainly violates the principle of least
surprise -- it is almost the definition of what an entry in config.sgml
*should* include.

So the change would be okay if we also removed one of the other mentions
in an unrelated section of the manual? I don't see the logic.
