I have just tested this by booting (i386) with
   hostname=test domain=aaa.nl
and the values that end up in /etc{hostname,hosts,resolv.conf} are still 
those provided by the DHCP server, not the preseeded values.

IMO your change is either incorrect or else done for the wrong reasons and 
making that change so shortly before the release seems inadvisable.
