I was able to work around this issue in the preseed.cfg for now by directly selecting a HWE kernel:

-d-i base-installer/kernel/override-image string linux-server
+d-i base-installer/kernel/override-image string linux-generic-lts-trusty

While this might not be what everyone wants it is a viable workaround for me at the moment.
