The value is hardcoded into the file. You may want to file a wishlist
bug to make it configurable via /etc/adduser.conf
If you crerate the directory with the wanted permissions before
calling adduser, adduser will simply this directory.
So make yourself a custom script (myadduser or such), that creates the
directory and calls adduser afterwards.
