Technically, "make menuconfig" replaces the current .config

However, it does so by loading the existing .config
then applying any changes you ask for in the menus
and then overwriting .config with the updated one.

So, copying an existing .config (eg. from your distro)
and then running "make menuconfig",
changing a few settings in the menus,
makes perfect sense.

You can always run a "diff" between the original .config
and the updated .config to see what has changed.
