Should, yeah, but check the snippet from the postinstall script:

if [ ! -f /usr/share/ssl/certs/exim.pem ] ; then
   umask 077
   if [ "x${FQDN}" = "x" ]; then
   cat << EOF | openssl req -new -x509 -days 365 -nodes -out 
/usr/share/ssl/certs/exim.pem -keyout /usr/share/ssl/private/exim.pem 

So it actively tries to create them in /usr/share/ssl/...

Read ya, Phil
