The "profile.php?do=privacy" page uses the modifyprofileprivacy template. Within it the actual list of items is contained within the $profileprivacybits variable.

A hook needs to be within a particular function to enable privacy settings for custom tabs. Looks like it was already requested in January:

Looks like privacy settings for categories worked in 3.8.0, but was broken in 3.8.1, and fixed in 3.8.2. Here's hoping they did a similar fix for custom blocks in total in 3.8.2 (gotta remember to download it lol).
