We need to force this option on when Metro + Desktop updates are selected (the default), but show the checkbox as off.

Sure! 
From a clean state the option in about:config called: app.update.mode should be set to 1.

You can also check:
Options | Advanced | Update
The checkbox Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons should be checked on.

A third test is to select update only desktop, turn off the checkbox for addon compat, select metro + desktop updates again (this will disable the checkbox).  Press OK to save the options.  Go back to the same page, you should see that the disabled checkbox for add-on compat is checked on.
WFM.
Tested on Windows 8 for iteration 10 using latest nightly from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/nightly/2013/07/2013-07-18-03-02-01-mozilla-central/

For clean profile app.update.mode was set to 1.
Options | Advanced | Update
The checkbox Warn me if this will disable any of my add-ons was checked on.
Followed steps given in comment 3, checkbox for add-on compat waschecked on.
