Are you using realurl? Consider this entry: config.tx_realurl_enable = 1

So yes it is used, and can't be removed. It is not a predecessor of
plugin.tx_[extkey], which has the goal to provide plugins that can be
copied somewhere to a PAGE TLO.

config.* properties however only exist once per configuration, which
becomes very clear in the RealUrl example. It would not work to
configure RealUrl via plugin.tx_realurl because it is never used

Also notice that config.* properties can only have one level depth. I am
pretty sure that config.tx_realurl.enable would not work if RealUrl
would try to access it this way.
