Look in lynx.cfg (which is in ~/.lynx/ on my machine) for the
ENABLE_LYNXRC options. From the preamble to those options:

# The forms-based O'ptions menu shows a (!) marker beside items which
# are not saved to ~/.lynxrc -- the reason for disabling some of
# these items is that they are likely to cause confusion if they are
# read from the .lynxrc file for each session. However, they can be
# enabled or disabled using the ENABLE_LYNXRC settings. The default
# (compiled-in) settings are shown below. The second column is the
# name by which a setting is saved to .lynxrc (which is chosen where
# possible to correspond with lynx.cfg). Use "OFF" to disable writing a
# setting, "ON" to enable it. Settings are read from .lynxrc after the
# corresponding data from lynx.cfg, so they override lynx.cfg, which is
# probably what users expect.
