It says in the generated .lynxrc:

# This file contains options saved from the Lynx Options Screen (normally
# with the '>' key).  There is normally no need to edit this file manually,
# since the defaults here can be controlled from the Options Screen, and the
# next time options are saved from the Options Screen this file will be
# completely rewritten.  You have been warned...

'>' does not do this AFAICT (it does in MBM menu).
Did this become different when the save checkbox was introduced (I am not sure
when either happened)? The text should either indicate that there is some point
to making edits to .lynxrc since it won't get overwritten by default, and the
implication that the overwrite occurs can be changed to reflect current

The text in .lynxrc could indicate this instead:

# Warning:
# Since you are reading this file you presumably are aware of its potential to
# configure the behaviour of the lynx browser, and are able to use a unix text
# editor.
# You may edit this file to control the startup behaviour of the lynx browser,
# but note well that if you choose to save settings "to disk" from [O]ptions
# you will overwrite this file completely and lose any edits you have made.
# However, [O]ptions settings will not be saved to disk unless you select
# Save options to disk: [_] before selecting "Accept Changes".
# This will replace this file and lynx will "remember" your new settings
# and "forget" your old settings.
