"Repeatable" means that the tag can occur more than once in a given record, as prescribed by MARC Bibliographic standards.

"Mandatory" means that the tag MUST be in the record, that it cannot be left out (although, from somethings I have been told recently, that may not be strictly true as far as Koha is concerned, it is true from the requirements of validity in MARC standards).

IIRC, from the default values that one specifies in Parameters. 

Hope this helps a bit.
