B.5.2 states
/begin quote
It is possible to use preseeding to change the default answer for a question, but still have the question asked. To do this the seen flag must be reset to “false” after setting the value for a question.

d-i foo/bar string value
d-i foo/bar seen false
/end quote

Does anyone have any known example of this working for any value of "foo/bar"?
