I can confirm it doesn’t do anything. I turned on NSTrace and it
doesn’t even seem to be causing the drag/drop functions to be called.
It doesn’t work in Emacs 25 either.

Out of interest, what is the use case for this functionality? Can you
use it to modify a face then save it?

They must be applying a patch to fix it.

I was going to submit a documentation fix for Emacs 26, but I’ve just
noticed the macos.texi file is full of nonsense. There must have been
some big changes to drag and drop functionality (at least) since this
was written.

I’ll try and sort it out.
