What is not possible is the action of installing packages as consequence
of a debconf question.
Debconf is a mechanism to resolve _configuration_ of packages, which
happens in postinst, i.e. _after_ packages have been installed (what
might confuse matters is that the questions involved in that
configuration may be asked before installation - but that does not
change that the actual configuration happens _after_ installation).
Hope that helps.
