No, it doesn't, I did that part myself :). On entry to runlevel 2, I
fire up a vncserver on :10 and run my control application in there.

It must be something that was added by whoever built the Debian package.
I'm running Debian sarge right now. I think it's 3.3.6. I can forward
the vnc.conf file. I got comparing the two vncserver scripts, and the
old one has "more hooks", but is probably debian specific.
I'm fine with it not actually using vnc.conf. Less indirection can be
handy at times. What I'm really trying to get my hands around is how to
get good looking fonts in my vnc session.
