Not necessarily.

That's at least partially right though.  The only rules that should
ever be installed to /etc/udev/rules.d are ones that the admin might
need to change.  As an example, the generated rules for persistent
network and optical devices may very well need to change, perhaps
several times, over the life of a system, and they are completely
independent of any packages that might come and go.  On the other
hand, the rules installed by the virtualbox package should be correct
for *that* package and not need to be changed by the sysadmin.
