As long as there are no suboptions that is indeed more logical.
However, when suboptions are added the comment moves down, and
depending on where new suboptions are added this may not be apparent
from the diff output alone. So one way is to use one 'rule' which
would be the comment above, or we keep simple packages without
suboptions with the comment below, and make sure the comment is moved
to the top when suboptions are added. The first alternative is easier
to maintain, but less beautiful for the simple packages without

If I had to pick, I'd pick the first alternative, for easier
maintainability and uniformity.
