I don't understand what you mean by "in case of a conflict".
Each castle owner chooses the points he would like to score for his castle. How can there ever be a conflict?

Two players may not choose the points they would want to score that freely if their castles must score the same points if their owners are not interested in scoring the same number of points (when they have multiple options to choose from).

Castles "must" not score the same number of points. Each castle owner can choose the points he wants to take.

If they are mutually dependent, they score the same points as indicated in the rules:

Quote
* Two or more incomplete castles may be standing next to each other. If one of them scores points, it will be considered as a completed feature for the adjacent castles. All the castle owners receive the same number of points.

No, I don't agree. You are wrongly interpreting a conclusion of a single example as a rule that would be valid in all circumstances. That is what co-member Bagge also tried to explain and I fully support his interpretation.

The example is only explaining that a scoring castle A located in the fief of castle B is triggering also the scoring of castle B. So, in a case that castle B is not triggered by others scoring events, the conclusion is correct and both castles score the same.

However, in another scenario in which castle B would simultanuously be triggered by other scoring events as well, it is not obligatory that both castles score the same. Both castle owners can choose which points they would like to score.

You are treating a conclusion of one example as a rule valid for all cases, but that is not what is intended here.

In this case, both players must score the same points for the castles:



This is clear in the rules.

This is not the case for all neigboring castles, like in the case below, where Yellow can choose to score for one of the roads or Blue's castle, but Blue can only choose one of the roads. In this case, each castle can score independently, since there is no mutual dependency .
