Deleting a non-existent config and notification of same to application

Have validation to catch while configuring something.
Same does not get called while deleting a non-existent config.

Not able to differentiate a “no xxxxx” of an existing config vs a non-existent config.

Is it that one needs to handle at application while deleting an existing config to print something on success.

In case of non existing, confd does not give indication to application ?
