(info "(emacs)Cua bindings")
has a brief mention of rectangle commands.

So you
1. ensure that cua-mode is on
2. get into 'enhanced rectangle' submode of cua with C-RET

Unfortunately trying to track some of the available functionality
there shows some of those functions as undocumented (eg M-p)

So there are 2 doc bugs here:
1. The info page does not spell out the functionality
2. The functions doing that functionality are not properly documented

I don't know about the documentation situation, but when you press C-enter to start rectangle selection, the a message occurs in the minibuffer explaining what your options are (including M-p).  You can bring back this messsage by pressing C-?.
