It seems that this is answered by the same dpkg-reconfigure dialog that is used to change the setting, which says:

Byobu can launch automatically at login (e.g. console, ssh), providing an attachable/detachable window manager on the command line.

If you select this option, Byobu will install a symlink in /etc/profile.d. This setting is system-wide, for all users logging into the system. Individual users can disable this by touching ~/.byobu/disable-autolaunch, or configuring with 'byobu-config'.

Do you want to launch Byobu at shell login for all users?

Have already tried to disable using byobu menu F9 options menu ?

You can also use the preseed option:
byobu byobu/launch-by-default boolean true

As demonstrated with http://bit.ly/uquick

Creating /etc/profile.d/Z98-byobu.sh as a symlink to /usr/bin/byobu-launch launches byobu by default for all the system users on login.
