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.
