The one canon example we have is {tIqDu' lel} "[Kahless] removed the [i.e.,
Molor's] hearts". So the subject is taking or getting the object out of
something. (Presumably that something would take the {-vo'} suffix, but
there's no evidence for this.)

Note these two adjacent entries in TKD:

  get out, flee (v)                       {Haw'}
  get out, take out (v)                   {lel}

The "get out of the room" sense is {Haw'} (though it implies some urgency).
