On second thought, I believe that is a bug.

>From (elisp)Variable Definitions:

 - Macro: defcustom option default doc [keyword value]...
     Declare OPTION as a customizable user option variable.  Do not
     quote OPTION.  The argument DOC specifies the documentation
     string for the variable.  It should often start with a `*' to
     mark it as a "user option" (*note Defining Variables::).  Do not
     start the documentation string with `*' for options which cannot
     or normally should not be set with `set-variable'; examples of
     the former are global minor mode options such as
     `global-font-lock-mode' and examples of the latter are hooks.
