This is right, and I wasn't able to make it work this way too.

I have got a solution, horrible but works fine :) , just add in your
profile/yourprofile.postinst file:

dpkg-reconfigure -p low -f gtk yourpackage

This way the package will still be installed with none Debian
front-end, but by the time the postinst script is called this has
changed and you are able to reconfigure the package and the debconf
questions will be shown.

If you find a "cleaner" way of solving this please let all us know.

Kind regards,
