I guessed this and it was also the reason my report was severity
normal.

Well, the installation manual is not clear when explaining the
different modules [1] or how to setup LVM [2].  In the former case,
there's no mention that partman will add LVM configuration in most of
the situations.  In the latter case, specifically subchapter 6.3.2.2,
the 4th paragraph states

  Then start the lvmcfg module (either directly from partman or from
  the debian-installer's main menu) and [...]

Thus, FWIU I can use both ways to configure the LVM, which is not
true (but I'm not an English-native speaker and maybe I missed
something in my quite fast reading of the installation manual).

BTW, I know that this happens only when booting in 'expert' mode, in
fact booting the 'install' mode works smoothly.

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
