   If I understand it correctly customize-set-variable can be used for

The two I know of are custom-set-faces and custom-set-variables.  They
are put automatically into an initialization file by the Custom user
interface (that is how I discovered them) and can be edited manually.

Their expressions look like this (from my .emacs file):

        (custom-set-variables '(Info-fontify t))

           ((((class color) (background dark)) (:foreground "yellow")))))

    If so should not this be documented in Info?

Yes, they should; I did not realize they weren't!

custom-set-variable is on another level.

I think there maybe is missing a very important piece of information from the doc string of custom-set-variables. Doest not calling that function set where to store customizations too?
