As far as I understand SYMBOL_WRITE, its main purpose is in the function
conf_write in confdata.c:

>if (!(sym->flags & SYMBOL_WRITE))
> goto next;
>sym->flags &= ~SYMBOL_WRITE;
>
>conf_write_symbol(out, sym, &kconfig_printer_cb, NULL);

So, if I have not missed anything, SYMBOL_WRITE decides whether to write a symbol
to .config or not. This does not necessarily mean that the user can change the value.
SYMBOL_WRITE may be set and the symbol may be written to .config while the user
does not even see the corresponding prompt.
