Honestly, I think that there should be a command like `add-to-option'
that can handle these things automatically and defer loading if

like this, or have a ...-user-list that is appended together with some
build-in list, and even though the actual problem is shared among all
user options.

Assuming I understand what you mean, I agree that this would be very useful. I think it would be super-helpful for there to be a way in the Customize interface to indicate that you want to add A, B, C to a defcustom list, and/or remove X, Y, Z. For another example where this would be helpful, see bug#54977.

(For people who build their Emacs configs by writing Elisp, this probably isn't too big a deal, since they probably know enough to do the right thing, but it couldn't hurt to make this easier in Elisp too. Although use-package already makes this about as easy as can be, since you can do all this in a ':config' block, and it Just Works.)
