You probably refer to the following string from dpkg:
   Selecting previously deselected package <package name>.

Like in:
Selecting previously deselected package libsasl2.
(Reading database ... 8724 files and directories currently installed.)
Unpacking libsasl2 (from .../libsasl2_2.1.19-1.5_sparc.deb) ...
Selecting previously deselected package libldap2.
Unpacking libldap2 (from .../libldap2_2.1.30-3_sparc.deb) ...
Selecting previously deselected package setserial.
Unpacking setserial (from .../setserial_2.17-39_sparc.deb) ...

Is that correct?

yes, this is correct, this is the text I refer to.

Is your comment that "previously deselected" is unclear as it was never installed in the first place and therefore never "deselected" (which implies some active action by the user)?

Would "Selecting previously unselected package <package name>" be an

yes, this would be clearer.  Alternatively this would be even clearer:

"Selecting additional required package <package name>"

or different order:

"Required additional package <package name> selected"

I am not on this list, please include my email address in any replies.

Kind regards
