This is because TERM_TYPE is set in lib/debian-installer.d/S30term-linux
which comes after calling the etc/rcS.d/S55kbd-chooser.  Here is the
excerpt from debian-installer-startup:

	for script in /lib/debian-installer-startup.d/S[0-9][0-9]* \
		/etc/rcS.d/S[0-9][0-9]*; do
	        if [ -x $script ]; then
        	elif [ -e $script ]; then
                	. $script

Either we should install S30kbd-chooser to /lib/debian-installer.d/
(i.e. S31kbd-chooser) or we could completely move it to rootskel
package.  I think the former sounds more reasonable as for the package
maintainer convenience.
