I'm not a debian (developer|maintainer) but here is my review of your seeks

 * Why don't you use dh_installdirs to create /var/lib/seeks/ instead of using
init script function checkuserdbpath() to do so. Directory permissions could
be handled with dpkg-statoverride in postinst .

 * If you need to ensure a log file exists you could touch it in postinst
maintainer script and then make sure logrotate keep the file (using
copytruncate option for instance).

* Using “getent passwd <user>” instead of “getent passwd | grep "<user>:"”
saves a process. Alright, that one is more a matter of personal taste :)
