preemptible and deletion protection

What happens if I set both preemptible and deletion protection?

After reading through the documentation for Deletion Protection available here:
https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/instances/preventing-accidental-vm-deletion

It seems that deletion protection will only prevent user commands from console/cloud shell from deleting the machine.

Once the instance encountering an issue or hits >24 hours, it will automatically be removed by GCP.
