Bug#939397: Preseeded debconf value for fontconfig/hinting_style is not honored

Package: fontconfig-config
Version: 2.13.1-2

I'm setting fontconfig/hinting_style to hintfull using
debconf-set-selections before installing the package itself.
This setting is ignored.

I guess this is because fontconfig-config.config is not using db_get
at all but sets a different default value using db_set.

See also #586700
