Yeah, that's not enforced at the moment, it's just documentation.
Most of the variables that are marked that way have other defenses
against being changed from the file, so I'm not sure that it's real
important to have a specific check for it.

Note that there are two separate behaviors: during postmaster startup,
errors in the config file are cause for aborting.  During SIGHUP reread,
errors in the config file may NOT cause an abort.  This is intentional.
The postmaster (and only the postmaster, not the N backends that are
also rereading the file) is supposed to emit a log message about any
problems, but it mustn't error out.

Feel free to propose a suitable refactoring.
