Ah, I see what you mean.  But I think your grep cannot be reliable
anyway because we cannot anticipate all the ways a distro may be

If for some distro /etc/default needs to be changed to a third
possibility then yes they'll have to grep for /etc/default; but if
/etc is renamed /flibble then they'll have to grep for /flibble.  I
expect most distro packages and admins will know about these

But write what you like; it's only a doc comment :-).
