Ah, your original question was a bit confusing. You said "you want to 
debootstrap the sudo way" some servers. I actually don't really 
understand what you mean by that, but understood you did not want to use 
Debian Installer, but do a plain chroot install using debootstrap.

In Debian Installer the component that asks if "a root account should be 
configured or sudo should be used" is user-setup.

This _should_ be documented in (from a user's perspective):
But I now see that that has not yet been done.

However, if you just want to know about sudo, you should read the sudo 
manpage. The command 'visudo' should be used to edit the /etc/sudoers 
file that determines who is allowed to do what using sudo.

Hope that helps. If you really only want to know more about sudo, you 
should ask on a user mailing list, not here.
