Exactly that's the case.

Yup.  I don't think that issue is actually related to all AUCTeX but it
works the way for all hooks with customization.  The only thing that
triggers the problem in AUCTeX is that AUCTeX itself adds a function to
the hook (and not as initial value).

I couldn't find any documentation that would define the interplay of
customize and hooks so I've asked for clarification on emacs-devel.


Until now, there are no answers but we'll see what the experts say.
IMHO, the current behavior is wrong.  Maybe a better approach was if
defcustoms of type hook wouldn't use `set-default' as :set function but
`add-hook'.  Then, hook customizations would have purely additive
semantics which sounds sensible to me.

It's the same with emacs 25 from the Git master's HEAD.
