[Bug?] Evil does not activate when loaded via customize

Hi, list!

I'm perverse and want to install Evil via package.el and load it 
via customize.  I notice that Evil does not turn on at startup 
when I customize evil-mode to t.  I still have to explicitly call 
(evil-mode 1) in my init-file.

Is this known behavior?  If so, is it a bug?  If so, can I fix it 

Note: I know the documentation explicitly tells me to install Evil 
like so:
      (add-to-list 'load-path "~/.emacs.d/evil")
      (require 'evil)
      (evil-mode 1)
As said, I'm just being perverse.  Thanks for any pointers!
