Yes you are :-) There really is no such thing as base-config anymore. Instead some items are installed in a chroot to the target system from the udebs and the preseeding is "carried over" to the regular packages in the chroot. For tasksel and exim I'm sure this is the case; for user-setup it may well be that the "passwd" prefix should be changed to a "d-i" prefix. I'm not sure though. Christian? After you reboot, all you will get is the login prompt (either console or display manager). No more base-config.
