Yup - as long as you don't extract the "etc" set. ;)
The usual upgrade procedude includes (after extracting the sets):
1) After extracting all sets (but etc.tgz), run "/etc/postinstall fix"
(check first with s/fix/check/) to remove old files etc.
2) After that, extract etc.tgz somewhere (/tmp/etc) and run "etcupdate -b
/tmp" to get help on fixing your /etc/ files.
