I'm not sure I get this. How can correlations at one level be "engulfed"
by correlations at another? The PSUs account for subject level correlation,
but for each subject I have multiple observations.

Moreover, if I -reshape-, does it still make sense to -svyset psu-? I thought

No. Unless your current -svyset-ting is -svyset _n-... and frankly I
don't know how that would behave with -reshape-. If you have PSUs in
your -svyset- (and NHANES does have them), then the correlations of
observations within the subjects will be engulfed by the correlations
of observations within the PSUs that -svy:- controls for.
