Aha! That must be it. customize automatically puts its variables at the
end of ~/.emacs , though. So maybe evil has the responsibility of
loading the customize variables properly, as Frank says.

Hmm. By "multiple buffers but one window", do you mean when you supply
multiple filenames to vim on the command line, and then use :next and
:previous to move between them? I wouldn't have thought that corresponds
to the way emacs can have multiple buffers open concurrently, especially
since vim actually closes the current file when you use :next or :prev,
unlike what happens in emacs when you select a different buffer.

It seems to me that emacs with its buffers is a lot more similar to how
vim works when you use ":tabedit" to open a new file and use [count]gt
and [count]gT to switch between them. And :q does indeed close a single
tab and not close vim entirely, when multiple tabs are open.

But I'm a total newbie at emacs and not exactly a hardened vim wizard
either, so I'm probably way off base.
