Absolutely!  And I suspect a relatively easy modification/addition for setup.exe.  It already has the concept of what's loaded, it's just a matter of storing this off into a single file that is read on subsequent runs of setup.exe.  
Then when the new install is complete the file is written to.  

In practice setup.exe would ask if you want to use the default configuration file, or load a separate one.  The default
Would always be written to.  After install the user would then copy and store the default configuration file as a separate one for subsequent use.
