When hovering this label, the dockwidget is visible, but it overlaps the Mainwindow and is not next to the MainWindow. When leaving the dock it is minimized by it self. This is usefull to save space if you have a small monitor.

I'm not sure what the current state of it is, but you could look at
the Qt based Indigo Dock project (
