Concepts obtain; they arise at the mind sense gate. But I'm not sure where you're going after this: concepts change, sure; they aren't permanent, sure. This seems to be a good time to indicate to the general person how all experience was & is this way - which is to say, impermanent - but you seem instead to point to concepts as being unreal in some way, which to me feels like heading off into metaphysics. I don't think it's useful to broach ontology, in part because of the difficulties you mention; the discussion can stay broadly phenomenological, which is much easier for the average person to get a handle on.
