I agree.

The doc string of electric-indent-mode says

    When enabled, this reindents whenever the hook ‘electric-indent-functions’
    returns non-nil, or if you insert a character from ‘electric-indent-chars’.

electric-indent-chars is supposed to contain printing characters
whose insertion should, secondarily, cause reindentation of the line.
Why is  tab  in that list?  That makes no sense.
