The mouse bindings are a bit confusing:

(defvar xref--button-map
  (let ((map (make-sparse-keymap)))
    (define-key map [mouse-1] #'xref-goto-xref)
    (define-key map [mouse-2] #'xref--mouse-2)
    map))

Why is the command called xref--mouse-2?  That's a very non-descriptive
command name.  And...  don't these two really kinda do the same thing?
mouse-1 sets the point first and then goes to the xref, and mouse-2
... does the same, only in a different way?
