     Programmer hardware: STK500v2
             Device type: atmega32u4

    _______________________________________________________

Details:

When programming the atmega32u4(m32u4) EFuse, AVRDude trys to write the upper
4 high bits as "0". These 4 bits are unused by the uP and are to be
unprogrammed, set to "1". This causes a mismatch when read for verification
since the uP ends up allowing 2 of these bits to be programmed:IE "1 1 0 0 i i
i i".
In the avrdude.conf file under m32u4, it is set to write "x x x x i i i i". By
updating the avrdude.conf file to "1 1 1 1 i i i i", the upper 4 bits are
properly left as a "1" while the lower 4 bits are written according to user
input. This corrects the issue.

Example: writing "F3" to the EFuse returns "C3" after programming since
AVRDude trys to write "03" and the uP mistakenly accepts 2 of the upper "0"s.
After updating the avrdude.conf to default the upper 4 bits to unprogrammed
("1"), the upper 4 bits are properly left as unprogrammed (unused) and the
EFuse properly returns as "F3".
