I meant the modeline text, for example, the background of the buffer
name or the major mode.  Does it get highlighted immediately when the
mouse is there?

No. A frame of hairline thin lines is drawn.

But you don't talk about dragging there, I suppose.

So the delay happens before these triangles show up. But have you tried to drag before they show up? Because, as I said before, they never show
up here anyway.

Dragging the mode-line works when the usual X11 cursor is still visible. In some regions of the mode-line the cursor changes to the drag form, in others, far right, it stays the same.
