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 ‘cus-edit.el’.

(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?
