What tells “C-h c S-<RET>” in that place? Also check the manual
section “3.1 The built-in table editor” about S-<RET> saying “This key
is also used by shift-selection and related modes (see Conflicts).” or
try emacs -Q.

No, it doesn’t matter if you only type. But the powerful “C-c . [...]
RET” can be used also for dates in the past, replace “[...]” with
“12-9-8”, use shift with arrows, etc.

Such relative dates are not supported in tables but you can use
“C-c . -2 RET” etc.
