You have a running system and want to know how a certain package is configured with debconf
This is interesting for setting up another system
You can use the debconf-show command followed by the packagename e.g.
This will show the configuration done with debconf. This command has to be run as root otherwise you will get an access error.

x11-common/xwrapper/allowed_users: Console Users Only
Setting with a star in the front, here missing, are set. Others are default.
