This was implemented _after_ the sarge release, so only happens if a daily installer image is used. It happens for any installation method. The syslog should show a message "Detected acpi support, installing acpi/acpid.". As /proc/acpi is only present with 2.6 kernels, acpi and acpid are not automatically installed by d-i for installations using a 2.4 kernel. The 'apt-install' script is used in d-i to either directly install a package (if the base system is already setup) or schedule a package for later installation (before that time). In any case, acpid will only be run _after_ the system is rebooted. See hw-detect in svn (or during installation) for the actual code.
