The question only defaults to macintosh_old under very specific
circumstances:

db_get xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/rules
if [ "$RET" = "sun" ]; then
  tsl xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model "type5"
elif [ "$RET" = "xfree86" ]; then
  if [ "$ARCH" = "powerpc" ]; then
    MODEL=macintosh
    # good old-fashioned BRAIN DAMAGE
    if [ -e /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes ]; then
      if [ "$(cat /proc/sys/dev/mac_hid/keyboard_sends_linux_keycodes)" = "0" ]; then
        MODEL=macintosh_old
      fi
    fi
    tsl xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model $MODEL
  else
    tsl xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model "pc104"
  fi
fi
validate_string_db_input xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model || debug_report_status "validate_string_db_input xserver-xfree86/config/inputdevice/keyboard/model" "$?"

Note the "BRAIN DAMAGE" part.
