It is.

The examples are almost certainly in the package somewhere.  They could be 
in a number of places, depending on how it was packaged.

Two good things to try:

1.  Look in /usr/share/doc/<packagename> - a file like README.Debian may 
tell you specific things about the package.

2.  'dpkg -L <packagename>' will list a package's contents if it's 
installed.  You can see where the files are.
