Richard added those messages in 2005...  I'm not quite sure what the
logic is here, but there does seem to be something...  reset...  here...

   (message "Creating customization items ...done")
+  (message "Resetting customization items...")
   (unless (eq custom-buffer-style 'tree)
     (mapc 'custom-magic-reset custom-options))
+  (message "Resetting customization items...done")
   (message "Creating customization setup...")

Oh, it's just a redrawing thing:

----------
custom-magic-reset is a compiled Lisp function in =91cus-edit.el=92.

(custom-magic-reset WIDGET)

Redraw the :custom-magic property of WIDGET.
----------

In that case I agree that the message is misleading, and I think it
should just be removed.  That part doesn't seem to take that much time,
anyway.  Richard?

emacs -Q
M-x customize-apropos-options .* RET

You see the message "Resetting customization items...", which is quite
wrong.  Nothing is being reset.  Users will be confused and certainly
hope/pray that that no option is actually being "reset".
