That part is slightly debate-able.
I've had my fair-share of comments [during reviews], where others were
asking/saying "is this fixing anything? please state if this is fixing
anything".

So, over time I got the habit of mentioning 'Doesn't fix anything.' if the patch
doesn't fix anything.

So, I'd leave it as-is [if that's possible].

I admit, I didn't read that document too much in-depth.
And I probably won't, because I am lazy.

Personally, what I try to do, is guess the maintainer's/community's preferences
over time via interactions.
Things differ slightly from community to community.
Of course, there is some common ground across all communities, and I try to
apply that first.
Then, depending on the flexibility/past-comments from other sent-patches I try
to apply those on top [unless I forget; which I kinda do].
