Now that's a good question ;)
It's a setting in debconf's config, and it seems that debconf
itself is abusing the database as registry for this setting (and
maybe others). I can't see any dumping of options to any kind of
config file in the postinstall.
The way the initial value for $frontend is determined in
/usr/share/perl5/Debconf/FrontEnd.pm looks suspicious to me too.
This is a bug in debconf, there should be something like a
/etc/debconf.conf, where you could make it use the
noninteractive frontend by mangling it through sed.
I'm not completely shure about this though, thus no bug but a
cc to the maintainer.
Why is "abbreviation" such a long word?
