How does Mutect2 deal with SoftClip bases?

Hi , I get a variant record like this using GATK4.1.0.0 Mutect2 tumoronly mode.
It seems that the insertion is caused by softclip bases. Please see the IGV snapshot( I have turned on "Show soft-clipped bases").

I want to know how Mutect2 deals with soft-clipped bases? And how Mutect2 flags the "read_position" filter tag.

Thank you.
