make delete-old vs make-delete-libs

I'm wondering if these commands from /usr/src/Makefile are correctly
# check-old - List obsolete directories/files/libraries.
# check-old-dirs - List obsolete directories.
# check-old-files - List obsolete files.
# check-old-libs - List obsolete libraries.
# delete-old - Delete obsolete directories/files/libraries.
# delete-old-dirs - Delete obsolete directories.
# delete-old-files - Delete obsolete files.
# delete-old-libs - Delete obsolete libraries.
From the above, it appears as if 'make delete-old' is the same as doing:
Running the command indicates otherwise. In fact, make delete-old outputs:
>>> Removing old files (only deletes safe to delete libs)
>>> Old directories removed
To remove old libraries run 'make delete-old-libs'.
That indicates, to me, that only old files were deleted. No old
libraries were touched.
What's up here? Which is right?
