pbuilder sets DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive in the environment. Debconf
always lets environment variables override defaults, so you will need to
unset DEBIAN_FRONTEND or force it to something else if you want debconf
to run interactively.

This also seems to be configurable via /etc/pbuilderrc.

There's no bug here in debconf. This bug should either be closed, or
possibly reassigned to pbuilder if you think it shouldn't be doing this.
Perhaps pbuilder would do better to not override the frontend when being
used interactively via 'pbuilder login'.
