I get the similar result and interested in it too.
So I looked further into it.

These are all questions that dpkg-reconfigure asked, with sample answers
and required answer types.
ddclient ddclient/password password
ddclient ddclient/fetchhosts select From list
# Run ddclient as daemon?
ddclient ddclient/run_daemon boolean true
ddclient ddclient/hostslist multiselect
ddclient ddclient/interface string
ddclient ddclient/protocol select dyndns2
# Run ddclient on PPP connect?
ddclient ddclient/run_ipup boolean false
ddclient ddclient/username string
ddclient ddclient/blankhostslist error
ddclient ddclient/names string
ddclient ddclient/modifiedconfig error
ddclient ddclient/checkip boolean true
ddclient ddclient/server string members.dyndns.org
# Interval between ddclient runs:
ddclient ddclient/daemon_interval string 300
ddclient ddclient/service select www.dyndns.com
Put in proper values and put it in a file, say ddclient.answers.
Then run 'debconf-set-selections ddclient.answers' before running
Hope it will work. Please post back.
