D-I currently does indeed fall back to lilo for _all_ /boot on LVM cases.
When LVM is set up using guided partitioning D-I will always create a 
separate /boot partition though.

AFAIK grub (at least the default "legacy" version) also still has problems 
with / on XFS. That's the one other case where D-I automatically falls 
back to lilo.
