Because "choosing this option" does not modify anything but the
debconf cache, and only the postinst script modifies… no wait,
"choosing this option" only changes the in-memory state of some UI
widget and hitting enter then informs debconf…

It's good to see that Debian doesn't have any more pressing problems
to solve. ;)

I suggest to use words like "causes" or "yields".
