If page "A" is a redirect to the page "B" and "A" has only one revision in history, you can rename "B" to "A" without deleting "A", without technical right to delete pages. Technically, you deletes "A" without right to delete pages and this event is called "delete_redir". Delete_redir2 , I assume, is something very similar, introduced half year ago.
