I searched with the command

sudo grep -lire fsck /etc

The relevant file is "/etc/init/mountall.conf". The fsck program isn't 
called directly from the script but by the program /sbin/mountall and 
that's why I suggested to change that program. I think you should 
generate a new initrd with the command

sudo update-initramfs -c -k $(uname -r)

after changing the program to make it work at the next boot.
