Oh, I see -- you're right I was doing this on the wrong line. Actually
if you edit a role field on an organization using a "little edit" (with
"e"), EBDB does some fancy footwork in the background to actually edit
the role field on the person record. That didn't happen with the
customize edit ("E") -- would you eval the following and confirm that it
works correctly?

(defun ebdb-edit-field-customize (record field)
  "Use the customize interface to edit FIELD of RECORD."
  (interactive
   (list (ebdb-current-record)
         (ebdb-current-field)))
  (let ((new-field (clone field)))
    (eieio-customize-object new-field)
    ;; If the user is editing a role field from an organization
    ;; record, do a switcharoo.
    (when (and (ebdb-record-organization-p record)
               (ebdb-field-role-p field))
      (setq record (ebdb-gethash (slot-value field 'record-uuid) 'uuid)))
    ;; The following two variables are buffer-local, and we're hoping
    ;; this will make them local to the customization buffer: ie, an
    ;; arbitrary number of *Customize* buffers can be opened, and the
    ;; accept/apply options will all behave correctly.
    (setq ebdb-customization-field field
          ebdb-customization-record record)))
