Well, in HA/MA, the delay is computed in 1/256 of a quarter note, with a -256 to + 256 range. By default, the value is 0, so there is no delay and the note is played as shown on the score.  Apparently, it doesn't influence the pressure time and if the delay is a bit long, the sound will probably clash with the next note.
It's sometimes used to "humanize" the sound (e.g. a pianist hitting some keys with a slight delay). You can reset all the delays by selecting the notes, the staff or the whole score, and do Edit>Quantize>Mechanize (or use the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+Z)
