Yeah, except that set_config_option contains this bit:
* Ignore attempted set if overridden by previously processed setting.
* However, if changeVal is false then plow ahead anyway since we are
* trying to find out if the value is potentially good, not actually use
* it. Also keep going if makeDefault is true, since we may want to set
* the reset/stacked values even if we can't set the variable itself.
if (record->source > source)
if (changeVal && !makeDefault)
elog(DEBUG3, "\"%s\": setting ignored because previous source is higher priority",
changeVal = false;

It'd probably be worth changing the order of the ApplySetting calls so
that it doesn't look suspicious.
