   No, indeed, it's a bug that needs to be fixed in set-variable.

If this would be considered a bug, then the global variant of
set-variable would be easy to fix, by having set-variable call the
:set function.  C-u set-variable (buffer-local variant) could not be
handled this way, because :set functions are usually not intended to
handle buffer-local values.  Of course, customize-option can not
handle buffer-local values at all.  One would need a new
:set-buffer-local keyword, or similar, if one wanted set-variable to
be able to handle buffer-local values for such variables.
