DELETE FROM tbl WHERE id = 3;
SAVEPOINT a;
UPDATE tbl SET col_1 = 5 WHERE id = 4;
ROLLBACK TO a;
ROLLBACK;

My question is whether "DELETE FROM tbl WHERE id = 3" has been done? Thanks.

The first ROLLBACK will undo the UPDATE and the second will undo the DELETE.

Best regards.

Thanks Frank.

That removed a doubt for me. According to text books, rollback constitutes a commit, which literally means the “rollback” only rollback to the specific savepoint and commit all statements before that savepoint.

I don't know which book you read but either you misunderstood it either it is plain wrong.
A rollback is NOT a commit in any way but as a commit it releases locks.
