It runs indent-line-function, which is indent-relative at the beginning of each line in the region, because indent-region-function is nil.

Theres more strange (buggy?) behavior here.

I took the text (note flush left):

In text modes, <TAB> inserts some combination of space and tab
characters to advance point to the next tab stop (*note Tab Stops).
If the region is active and spans multiple lines, it advances the
first
character of each of those lines to the next tab stop (*note Using
Region).  [...]

Then did the described action (except for turning transient-mode on)
At first it put 1 tab at start of each line

The second time it added 1 tab on 1st line,2 on second, 3 on third, 4
on fourth etc !!
