I wouldn't oppose having `describe-variable' add a short sentence in
the same place where it says things like "becomes buffer local" or "is
risky". The sentence could be as short as:

     this variable has a `custom-set' property;

perhaps followed by something else such as

     so setting it directly might not have any effect

But I don't think printing the entire custom-set property is desirable.
