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.
