That sounds like a cool feature that Kim added yonks ago (see
ChangeLog entry below).  It seems to work here.

        * mwheel.el: Avoid accidental yanking of text while scrolling with
        the mouse wheel.  This adds a short period after each mouse wheel
        scroll event where a click on the mouse wheel button is ignored.
        (mouse-wheel-click-event, mouse-wheel-inhibit-click-time): New customs.
        (mouse-wheel-click-button, mwheel-inhibit-click-event-timer): New vars.
        (mwheel-inhibit-click-timeout,mwheel-filter-click-events): New defuns.
        (mwheel-scroll): Add mwheel-filter-click-events as pre-command-hook.
        Start mwheel-inhibit-click-event-timer with timeout handler
