Does anyone know if this ever worked?

AFAICS, it looks like it fails because in the menu-bar-make-toggle
macro, (custom-load-symbol 'save-place) does not load saveplace.el. 
This is because (get 'save-place 'custom-loads) returns nil, because
cus-load.el has not been loaded.

The custom-load-symbol definition used to live in cus-edit.el (which
requires cus-load), but was moved to custom.el (which does not load
cus-load.el) specifically so it could be used with the menu-bar.
I think this may have broken it.

Should custom.el therefore (require 'cus-load)?
