If you press C-h k <your key>, you'll see this:

DEL (translated from <kp-delete>) runs the command
backward-delete-char-untabify, which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in

It is bound to DEL.

The key is "translated" to DEL, you can fix this by binding it to
something else:

(global-set-key (kbd "<kp-delete>") 'delete-char)

If you're think that the default behavior is wrong, please also report a
bug (M-x report-emacs-bug).
