It is virtually impossible to write a non-trivial packet processing application without support for configuration file (librte_cfgfile) and CLI (librte_cmdline), therefore I think both of these building blocks are definitely within the scope of DPDK. As its name suggests, DPDK is a *development kit* for data plane applications, right?
