You mean something like:

emplate: pkgsel/update-policy
Type: select
Default: unattended-upgrades
Choices-C: none, unattended-upgrades
__Choices: No automatic updates, Install security updates automatically
_Description: Updates management on this system:
 Applying updates on a frequent basis is an important part of keeping the
 system secure.
 By default, security updates are automatically installed by the
 unattended-upgrades package. Alternatively, you can opt-out from
 this system and apply updates manually using standard package management

pkgsel/update-policy=none thus seem the perfect preseed choice for
your use case.
