Below are some lines which should work, but don't and therefor I've commented 
them out. 
# Run late_command script to set additional things up
#d-i preseed/include string /core-pkgs.cfg
#d-i preseed/late_command string preseed_fetch /scripts/late_command.sh 
/root/late_command.sh > /dev/null
#d-i preseed/run string /scripts/late_command.sh

Note that I haven't tried hooks with absolute urls, since I want my scripts to 
be portable. But one should be able to (for example) wget <url> and then execute 
it in late_command.

The most extended and likely accurate examples I've found are on Philip Hands' 
site, who's also the maintainer of the preseed (src) package:
