These are all necessary, and debconf is an essential package which is
not subject to the circular dependency postinst ordering problems afaik.

Well, I'm not sure if that is an excuse for violating policy.
(Actually apt is the one violating policy, but if apt did work as policy states it should these packages [like all other packages with circular dependencies] would be uninstallable, which as debconf is essential, would probably be a critical priority bug.)
