Automated LMDE3 install with preseed

Is it possible to automate the installation of LMDE3 with a preseed file? I would like to build a vagrant box with Packer, similar to these: https://gitlab.com/Virtual-LTSP/Packer/tree/master/tara The template files that are used for Tara do not work for Cindy, because it uses a different installer.
