Selfdestruct via delegate call

Hi all,
I was reading the introduction to Ethereum Smart Contracts here . At the end of the page, it says:

The only possibility that code is removed from the blockchain is when a contract at that address performs the SELFDESTRUCT operation. The remaining Ether stored at that address is sent to a designated target and then the storage and code is removed.

Note that even if a contract’s code does not contain the SELFDESTRUCT opcode, it can still perform that operation using delegatecall or callcode.

How is this possible? What does it mean?
