`C-h k <mouse-3>' explains:

| <mouse-3> at that spot runs the command mouse-save-then-kill
|    which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `mouse'.
| (mouse-save-then-kill CLICK)
|
| Save text to point in kill ring; the second time, kill the text.
| If the text between point and the mouse is the same as what's
| at the front of the kill ring, this deletes the text.
| Otherwise, it adds the text to the kill ring, like M-w,
| which prepares for a second click to delete the text.
|
| If you have selected words or lines, this command extends the
| selection through the word or line clicked on.  If you do this
| again in a different position, it extends the selection again.
| If you do this twice in the same position, the selection is killed.
