Actually, you've given a very good reason to leave them like they are.
On systems other than the ones for which that sample /etc/pam.d/gdm file
is destined for, it is quite likely that it is completely wrong.  This
means that the necessity for editing will be obvious instead of
insidiously wrong.

I suggest leaving it the way it is.
