To me, the menu option suggests the block as a whole is to be indented
by the specified number of characters, so no, I would not expect the
position of the caret to be significant.

However, I never indent blocks using the menu. I select the block,
position the caret where the indent is supposed to appear and press
space or tab a number of times.

Sometimes I'll use that same procedure to insert a column of other
characters in a block and then I would definitely expect the position of
the caret to have an impact.
