That's not the correct fix, I think.

That's the difference. Non-interactive upgrades shouldn't ask questions
in the first place if no new questions have been added.
Otherwise, the questions should be asked; however, the big difference is
that xserver-xorg should observe dpkg's --force-confdef (as well as
--force-confold and --force-confnew) flags so that the new configuration
file will be written--somewhere--so the user can compare it with the old
one in order to accept the changes or not.
