I'd say it depends on the daemon, for some it could be necessary.  But
for any network-facing daemon I would say that it's surprising and
undesirable behaviour if a package update breaks active client
connections etc.  Making configuration changes take effect from a %post
is unfriendly; especially if the config is not marked noreplace.
