In the fourth option of safe mode, there is a checkbox to "reset settings and
user interface modifications". When someone reads that, he presumes that only
by selecting this checkbox the UI will be reset. But, when I choose, for
example, the first or second option, my UI is reset too. When I say that the UI
changes, I'm talking about the icons that I choose to hide on the toolbar. The
interface colors also reset. 
That said, the question is: choosing any option of Safe Mode resets the UI? If
so, then the checkbox "reset settings and user interface modifications" is

What I suggest is making clear if the lower options include the higher options
and all their checkboxes (cumulative); or if they are simply more radical, but
not cumulative with the higher ones. 

In another words, what is clear in the description is that:
Extensions > Configure > Restore from backup
But is it correct to say:
Extensions = Extensions + Configure + Restore from backup
