The docstring says:

 Note: The value of `indent-tabs-mode' will determine whether a real
 tab character will be inserted, or the equivalent number of spaces.
 When inserting a tab, actually the function stored in the variable
 `c-insert-tab-function' is called.

But this is not quite true. As far as I can tell from the code, indent-tabs-mode is not tested before calling c-insert-tab-function. What the documentation seems to mean is that if c-insert-tab-function has its default definition, insert-tab, then the first sentence applies. I suggest therefore the following paragraph in place of the above:

 The function stored in the variable `c-insert-tab-function' is called
 when a tab is to be inserted.  By default, this function is `insert-tab',
 which uses the value of `indent-tabs-mode' to determine whether a real
 tab character will be inserted, or the equivalent number of spaces.
