[Koha] Creating Call Numbers

You are not understanding correctly.  Call numbers are assigned by
each library. Libraries will use different call numbers for the same
item depending on the books they have around them on the shelf.  You
can set it up to pull the call number from the 050 or 082 field in to
the 952o ... but that's about as close as you can get to an
automatically filling that field in.

That said, when you import records in bulk there is no way to have
that field fill in automatically, you'd need to edit the MARC file
before you import it using a tool like MARCEdit.
