I guess the variable gets changed by one of the ways that Lisp-level
watchers cannot catch.

Not at a glance.  But the key to this mystery is most probably in your
customizations.  Some code which probably runs off a timer or some X
event does something that directly or indirectly resets the variable
in that buffer.  Maybe you have some code which directly or indirectly
calls kill-all-local-variables, for example.  Or something else to
that effect.

You could add logging to your functions that turn off the line
numbers, and see what's in the log when this happens.
