Default Confused by the different handling of debconf questions when using dpkg-reconfigure

That's because of the debconf priority level. Do:

dpkg-reconfigure debconf

and you can set the debconf priority to low to have
all the questions, always. Note that Debconf can
also be set to non-interactive mode...

So there's no bugs here!!!
