Thanks for the bug report.
I can reproduce this bug in Emacs 26.3. On current master, the bug manifests
differently: we don't get the State buttons, but we do get the message:
Symbol's function definition is void: nil
The difference lies in `custom-variable-modified-p' bugging out before we draw
the bogus State buttons for all options, because it is not supposed to handle
The bug is that Custom-save recalculates the state and redraws all widgets,
even the hidden ones. I propose the attached patch, that changes
Custom-save to only act on edited widgets in the buffer.
