On jessie and stretch, clicking that menu item with the secondary mouse
button and then clicking "properties" reveals that its target file is
/usr/share/applications/obconf.desktop which defines the command
Exec=obconf

and
$ dpkg -S /usr/share/applications/obconf.desktop
obconf: /usr/share/applications/obconf.desktop
$ type obconf
obconf is /usr/bin/obconf
$ dpkg -S /usr/bin/obconf
obconf: /usr/bin/obconf

shows that both those files are installed by the obconf package.
