Practical answer: a field to ignore entirely ;)

Long answer: It's probably derived from the MARC21 definition of the
852 $f, also called "coded location qualifier", which is meant to
encode a situation where most of the items in a run of a serial are
held in a location (e.g., the magazine stacks) with a few held in a
second location (the new magazines area).  For the gory details,
please see:


Koha doesn't do anything with that subfield, and certainly makes no
attempt to parse the coding.
