Ah, good.

Right, a bug would need to be filed for debconf. You are probably in a
better position to file it, and test possible implementations, would
you mind?

Yeah, but it seemed incomplete/partial or just with some workarounds
to handle the missing dpkg_script_t support in dpkg. See for example
the TODO item or the “Use named file transition to fix this” commend
in «policy/modules/contrib/dpkg.te». Maybe there's other things that
could be improved or refined now in the policy? I don't know. :)
