I don't see conf language being listed at https://orgmode.org/worg/org-contrib/babel/languages/index.html

Is it functioning example or just pseudo-code org-babel snippet? How to install it?

My mistake was that I used org-babel-execute instead of org-babel-tangle.

Also, conf-mode package is nice to have installed for such blocks.
