As stated in the code, it looks to be intentional. I'd argue otherwise because :
1) keeping the selection "anchors" the regions in the user's mind, i.e. he knows where he is
2) maybe he intended to subsequently do something with his selection (merge audio regions...)
3) maybe it is a complex selection with e.g. a few regions selected amongst many, and the user is zooming to see if he had everything selected as intended
Anyway, unselecting everything is really easy and enforcing the deselection (thus guessing the user's intention) doesn't seem to be the right choice here.
