So you do have this setting included in your preseed file:
d-i netcfg/disable_dhcp boolean true

Yes, if they are commented, the dialogs should be displayed. But as you 
display them here, they are _not_ commented out. They just have empty 

What you need is:
# d-i netcfg/get_hostname string
# d-i netcfg/get_domain string
(Or just remove the lines completely.)
