The ‘delete settings and data for all extensions’ is clearly a response to the problem with 12.11 where deleting private data (the persistent storage bit) would reset all extensions. It’s good that Opera are listening to some of the criticism although not good that 12.11 that was considered a stable release had so many bugs in it. So far 12.12 works well for me although the age old problem of some site incompatibility still exists.
