    Not all electric features are visual: some of them modify the buffer.
    For example, if you type `#' in a C-mode buffer, it causes the `#'
    character be flushed to column zero.  Braces and semi-colons are
    similar: they cause reindentation.

    I think these effects should not be turned off inside a macro.

I agree.  The commands should modify the buffer the same way
in a macro as they would outside the macro.

But display-only effects are another matter.
Those can be different in a keyboard macro.
