As it turned out, such configuration files are handled via a different system: The whiptail prompts are done through debconf, which means that a DEBIAN_FRONTEND=none setting will give you the desired results for a non-interactive upgrade. so in order to upgrade non-interactively, one muse use DEBIAN_FRONTEND=none.
