In that case you may as well have an /etc/dnsmasq.conf.d/ subdirectory with
what you listed as possible names but other names being possible. That seems
to be the "new way" of having configuration files so that other packages can
drop their own configs into it without having to edit global files.

However, I personally only use the DNS masquerade, as it was originally
written for, so doesn't really matter too much to me. ;)
