Could be.  I installed a game, chose "games", installed another game,
noticed that it offers "games", thought "hmm, nice, but it'd be even
nicer if it didn't bother me with silly questions", then reflashed and
the installer offered the default choice -- "extras" -- for bomberman.

Time to RTFM?


        - maemo-select-menu-location <app>.desktop [default-folder]


        The default-folder parameter is optional, and when given
        determines the default folder of the menu entry. If you omit it,
        the menu entry will appear in "Extras".

So, it *is* possible.
