You're not reading carefully enough.
From the info page:
| Boolean option, the same as the command line option
| `--hidden-files-shown'. *Note Command Line Options::.
| # '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.
