Great, it means that cdebconf now works like debconf ;)
In lilo-installer.postinst
    db_subst lilo-installer/bootdev bootdev "$defaultbootdev"
must be replaced by
    db_fget lilo-installer/bootdev seen
    if [ "$RET" != true ]; then
        db_set lilo-installer/bootdev "$defaultbootdev"

I will change templates and debconf commands when Default: ${foo}
is used in templates files.

Thanks for your report.
