Does removing padding remove data or does it just remove what’s not required

If say I use metaflac or ID3 to remove the padding for FLAC and MP3s'.

ID3.exe command:
Code: [Select]
ID3 -2 -s 0 "file"

metaflac.exe  command:
Code: [Select]
metaflac --preserve-modtime --dont-use-padding --remove --block-type=PADDING "file"

If I use the commands for both to remove padding, does it affect any existing tags (remove them) or does it just remove what's not needed with regards to padding?
