When I re-implemented the comment commands in newcomment.el, I just
preserved this part of the behavior (that comment-padding only applies to
comment-region but not to comment-indent).

I don't know what was the original motivation for it (if any), but without
introducting a separate comment-indent-padding, changing the behavior would
have meant that I'd have removed some functionality (the ability to
(indirectly) specify different amounts of padding), so I decided to keep it
as is.
