What 'Deselect' option in the timeline will do? Will it run the new search or not?

I suppose you mean when you do a selection on timeline in search page, only if you click on "Zoom to Selection" this filters temporary your initial query and you can visualize only events inside your new selected period of time. "Deselect" option only deactivates your selection in timeline and it doesn't run you query.

Only in case you zoom in or zoom out after you select a shorter period in timeline Splunk will run your search with a different time period

Mouse over and click on the tallest bar or drag your mouse over a cluster of bars in the timeline.
The events list updates to display only the events that occurred in that selected time range. **
The time range picker also updates to the selected time range.
**You can cancel this selection by clicking Deselect.

it looks like Selecting and Deselecting are so instant, i think, splunk does not run a new search. it got some mechanisms to drill down the selected timeline bars.
