What is the effect of the permission "Restore Issue"

In my permission schemes I found a new entry "Restore Issue". 

The documentation Managing project permissions | Administering Jira applications Data Center and Server 8.18 | Atlassian Documentation says: "Permission to restore issues to a specific project."


But what exactly does that mean? Does this grant the user the ability to restore a delete issue? If yes, how? If no, what else is the meaning/effect of that permission?

It's about restoring archived issues.  Deleted issues are completely gone.

Thanks. Than only the name is misleading. Correct name was "Unarchive Issue" or "Restore from archive".
