If you have the caching-nameserver package, it's the expected behaviour:
/etc/named.conf is "owned" and labelled as "config file" for caching-nameserver.
The regular bind/bind-chroot don't provide named.conf.
You should not install the caching-nameserver package if you are
indeed providing DNS services with bind...
