There are some custom settings (I'm afraid I can think of anything
specific at the moment) where setting them via `customize-...' also
triggers a setting up function, which incorporates the new setting into
something deeper than just a variable value.

If you're going to be restricting yourself to not using the
`customize-...' interface, you'll have to be aware of which settings
need a setting up function called after their being set, and calling
those functions manually.
