Clarify deconstruct() in Custom Model Field docs #11074

This makes a minor change to the Custom Model Fields documentation that explains that field deconstruction is used during model migration & further explains the second example. For a new reader, it wasn't exactly clear why one needed to write a deconstruct() method; the docs mentioned serialisation but omitted the purpose.

Let me know if this change is considered more than trivial and I'll open a Trac ticket.
