The question that was asked is answered, however, by second paragraph, which says:

   "For each inline element (including anonymous inlines elements),
    the following steps are performed, treating bidi formatting
    characters as if they were not there:"

That last clause is the answer.  Note that this whole part of the algorithm 
takes place before BiDi reordering.  Therefore in the original example:

   A ‮ C B‬D

rule 4 item 2 means that the space before 'C' is removed and hence after BiDi 
reordering you get:

   A B CD
