Not all electric features are visual: some of them modify the buffer.
For example, if you type `#' in a C-mode buffer, it causes the `#'
character be flushed to column zero.  Braces and semi-colons are
similar: they cause reindentation.

I think these effects should not be turned off inside a macro.
