Sorry, but I'm going to disagree here…

I think that's documented in the installation guide:

    “B.4.1. Localization
    Setting localization values will only work if you are using initrd
    preseeding. With all other methods the preconfiguration file will only
    be loaded after these questions have been asked.”

See: https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/apbs04.html.en

Leaving this open for the time being, but I think it should be closed as
not a bug.
