Ah, yes.  This is due to a design decision in the Custom Themes code: it
deliberately ensures that the user's own customizations override
anything set by a theme, which in term overrides changes set outside
Customize.  (All settings should be reversible.)

The idea is that you should be able to load a theme, and then change
individual settings to you disagree with.  This seems like a reasonable
thing to want, though it's true that it could lead to confusion.  Maybe
the Customize Themes buffer should display a warning about this.
