The simple act of transporting it anywhere is all it takes. Exposures to other magnetic field generating objects will soon catch the rest. If you have ever taken a magnetic compass near any large iron object, you will observe the effect for some distance on either side. A serious problem on early iron ships. While a small piece may have only a small field, and not be strongly magnetized, you will be hard pressed to find any iron that is not at least weakly magnetized. Steel is not nearly so susceptible.

Basically I store my camera next to a large piece of iron. In the
manual it says you're not supposed to have the camera near magnetic
things. Is this okay?
Storing your camera in close proximity to iron will cause the camera to
take stronger pictures.
And it wouldn't be steeling them, either
I've seen ironic images. Now I know how they got them.

So, the advice to avoid placing a device the manufacturer believes to be negatively affected by proximity to magnetic fields in close proximity to a magnetic field is not only reasonable, but worth observing. On the other hand, iron has largely been displaced by steel in the modern world, and is not so universally found as in earlier days. But even steel ships require degaussing equipment, and you can read 'demagnetizing for degaussing.
I had a fastidious neighbor once who continually cleaned his new concrete driveway with white gasoline and a steel wire brush. Since God does apparently watch over fools like us, he never had a problem, and he never could understand my concern. About a year after I moved away, I heard that his house, and my old home had burned to the ground. I never did learn why.
