In the output of `describe-variable' you'll see the byte-code unless
the expression is quoted:

,----[ <f1> v TeX-master RET ]
| TeX-master is a variable defined in `tex.el'.
| Its value is nil
| Automatically becomes buffer-local when set in any fashion.
| This variable is safe to use as a file local variable only if its value
| satisfies the predicate `#[(x) [BYTE-CODE] [x (t nil shared dwim)] 2]'.
| [...]

Richard advised to quote the lambda expression in this case.  See the
following discussion on emacs-pretest-bug:

Bye, Reiner.
