apt-file annoying download behavior

apt-file (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

When restoring "apt-file update" download behavior (using /usr/share/doc/apt-file/examples/apt-file-2-update.sh --install) "apt-file update" and "apt-file find" use packages contents in /var/lib/apt-file/lists

But "apt update" still always download package contents to /var/lib/apt/lists

It seems disable content fetching (/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/60disable-contents-fetching.conf) does not work

It is reproduced in 18.04 and 18.10
