OK. So where's the part where you have to say 2 in order to get 3?

If I use customize to say:

mode: all : maximum
mode: name : f90-mode : level 2

Then I get level 2 highlighting in F90 buffers.

Oh, perhaps I see the problem. You said:

  my `font-lock-defaults' `KEYWORDS' member is like `(level-1 level-2
  level-3 level-4)'

There should be a separate element at the start giving the default
highlighting for the mode. See for example f90-mode:

  (set (make-local-variable 'font-lock-defaults)
       '((f90-font-lock-keywords f90-font-lock-keywords-1
         nil t))

(or grep for "keywords-1" in the lisp sources)

That does indeed look like a documentation bug in the manual...
