I'm not sure where in d-i to look for this. Looking around in D-I SVN, I see no code under "packages/" that says "don't install grub-installer and use lilo-installer instead". So, only the packages' priorities and the Menu-Item number can give precedence of one over the other.... Packages are "Priority: standard" and grub-installer has a lower menu entry number. So, in short, I don't see any default install path where users would end up with lilo-installer being executed in place of grub-installer. The only path seems to be an expert install and explicitly choosing to install LILO instead of GRUB. So, I would say that LILO is no longer the default installer for some installations of lenny.
