That's interesting, but also very confusing. If your assumption is
correct, what is the point of being able to run dpkg-reconfigure in
non-interactive mode?

You can only reconfigure a package that is already installed, so (as I
understand it) if the debconf registry is supposed to be clobbered by
whatever the actual system configuration is before use, that would
mean `dpkg-reconfigure -fnoninteractive <package>` is a completely
useless and pointless command.

Let's look at the dash package

$ sudo debconf-get-selections | grep dash
# Use dash as the default system shell (/bin/sh)?
dash    dash/sh boolean true
$ ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Jan 24  2017 /bin/sh -> dash
$ echo dash dash/sh boolean false | sudo debconf-set-selections
$ sudo debconf-get-selections | grep dash
# Use dash as the default system shell (/bin/sh)?
dash    dash/sh boolean false
$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -fnoninteractive dash
Removing 'diversion of /bin/sh to /bin/sh.distrib by dash'
Adding 'diversion of /bin/sh to /bin/sh.distrib by bash'
Removing 'diversion of /usr/share/man/man1/sh.1.gz to 
/usr/share/man/man1/sh.distrib.1.gz by dash'
Adding 'diversion of /usr/share/man/man1/sh.1.gz to 
/usr/share/man/man1/sh.distrib.1.gz by bash'
$ ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 Jan 17 10:55 /bin/sh -> bash
$ 

The dash package reconfiguration has no issues modifying the system
configuration based on debconf. I would expect tzdata to behave in a
consistent manner with other packages.
