It's bound to be a function added to "kill-emacs-hook", and sure enough
keyfreq does add the function `keyfreq-autosave--do'. The particular
error probably comes from an accidentally-deleted closing parenthesis,
ie somewhere there's a line that looks like this:

(setq var some-value

with no paren at the end. There's no setq in keyfreq-autosave--do or its
immediate callees, but I'd say that's guaranteed to be the problem
somewhere down the line.
