I think it is the same as for `backward-delete-char' wrt the
deletion part.  This is the text from `backward-delete-char'
regarding the region:

 If Transient Mark mode is enabled, the mark is active, and N is 1,
 delete the text in the region and deactivate the mark instead.
 To disable this, set option `delete-active-region' to nil.

Do you have a suggestion for a doc string?  I don't know what that
command does when there's an active region.

The doc string should, like that of `backward-delete-char' (aka
`delete-backward-char'), mention the behavior with `transient-mark-mode'
and its dependence on `delete-active-region'.

All commands that act differently when the region is active should have
that behavior documented.  This is one where the doc is insufficient;
there may be others as well.
