That seems to come from comint.el, which is part of Emacs, rather than
;; Give old user input a field property of `input', to
;; distinguish it from both process output and unsent
;; input. The terminating newline is put into a special
;; `boundary' field to make cursor movement between input
;; and output fields smoother.
help-echo "mouse-2: insert after prompt as new input"
Turning it off might be tricky -- I think we rely on
comint-use-prompt-regexp being t for other reasons.
