You're not reading carefully enough.

From the info page:

| `hidden-files-shown'
|      Boolean option, the same as the command line option
|      `--hidden-files-shown'.  *Note Command Line Options::.

From /usr/share/doc/d-1.2.0/d.conf.example:

| # 'hidden-files' - boolean option.  Controls whether files with a
| # period in their name are shown in the output.  This defaults to
'false' in 'd'.
| # Set to 'true' or 't' or '1' to turn on.
| #hidden-files = False

Spot the difference?

If you put "hidden-files = true" in ~/.d.conf it works as advertised.
